Local Transport Plan

What is a local transport plan?

A local transport plan is a policy document that outlines the approach to transport; it covers the general aims and objectives for the transport system in the context of existing and emerging national policies for the local area. Government legislation requires that each Local Transport Authority (LTA) creates a Local Transport Plan. In the South Hampshire sub-region, this applies to Hampshire County Council, Southampton City Council, and Portsmouth City Council.

What is the South Hampshire transport strategy?

Hampshire County Council, Southampton City Council, and Portsmouth City Council have worked in partnership as Transport for South Hampshire (TfSH) to produce the joint Local Transport Plan (LTP3) Strategy for South Hampshire, which will guide the development of their transport networks until 2031. It has been produced following extensive consultation with the public and our strategic partners.

The twenty year (from 2011 to 2031) joint transport strategy also forms the LTP3s of Portsmouth City Council and Southampton City Council, and will be included within the Hampshire County Council LTP3. Each LTA is also responsible for developing its own supporting implementation plan, outlining how the policies and strategies that will be put into practice.

All LTP3 documentation is subject to a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) and Habitats Regulations Assessment (HRA) Screening Report and equalities impact assessment (EIA). The SEA process has incorporated the requirement to carry out an assessment of the health impacts of the policies and measures contained within the LTP.
