Local Transport Plan 4
The current transport plan came into effect in April 2016 and contains the transport high level strategy up to 2026 and the more detailed plan covering the period up to 2021. It sets out the challenges and issues for our existing and future transport systems and how we seek to address them.

Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems bid application
The council has applied for a scheme which will implement user centric solutions enabling blind and partially sighted people to access and move around the city centre in a safer and more independent manner. This will be achieved through the use of newly emerging digital technology to provide real time, two-way, journey information directly to visually impaired users.
Another objective is to provide staff and visitors to the new RNIB head office in the city centre safe, accessible routes from the main transport hubs (Rail and Bus Stations). As a result, accessibility will be improved for up to 425 people per week.
Many individuals find the prospect of going out, especially into the city centre, too daunting and therefore are forced to stay at home or seek a less efficient alternative. This can effect individuals emotionally, socially and economically.
Local Transport Plan 4 - Environmental Assessment
The Strategic Environmental Assessment Directive requires an environmental assessment of certain plans and programmes which are likely to have significant effects on the environment. Our local transport plan falls into this category.
The Strategic Environmental Assessment aims to identify potentially significant environmental impacts of implementing the plan. It will also seek to eliminate or mitigate environmental impacts by adjustment to the plan and prescribing other measures.
