Local Transport Plan - Outline Programme for the development of a new Transport Strategy for Brighton & Hove

Report of the Executive Director, Economy, Environment & Culture

Decision:

1)            That the Committee agree the indicative, outline project programme for the development of the council’s next Local Transport Plan, as set out in paragraph 3.6 of this report.

Minutes:

16.1      The Committee considered a report of the Executive Director, Economy, Environment & Culture that outlined an indicative programme of activities and associated with the development of a new Local Transport Plan (LTP) document setting out the city’s future transport strategy and investment priorities.

 

16.2      Councillor Wares noted that the report detailed that progress would be monitored and asked how that would be undertaken. Councillor Wares observed that the objectives listed at paragraph 3.2 could be more specific, particularly in relation to tourism. Councillor Wares supplemented that focus should remain on delivering projects from LTP4 that had not yet been started or completed.

 

16.3      The Head of Transport Policy & Strategy explained that monitoring of LTP4 was not explicitly published but a number of key performance indicators were used to monitor progress as part of an overall framework adding that there would be much more monitoring of LTP5. The Head of Transport Policy & Strategy explained that whilst the objectives listed were high level, the recent publication of the council’s Economic Strategy and Visitor Strategy were an opportunity to ensure that LTP5 reflected the objectives in those plans. The Head of Transport Policy & Strategy added that it was important to improve communication on progress being made on LTP4 and reporting back on that progress to councillors.

 

16.4      Councillor Wares stated that it was important that focus did not drift from projects already agreed in LTP4.

 

16.5      The Head of Transport Policy & Strategy agreed and clarified that LTP5 would build on projects agreed as part of LTP4.

 

16.6      RESOLVED- That the Committee agree the indicative, outline project programme for the development of the council’s next Local Transport Plan, as set out in paragraph 3.6 of this report.
