On Thursday 28th April 2016 Buckinghamshire County Councillors gave their full approval to a blueprint for the future of transport in the County.
The Local Transport Plan looks ahead to 2036 to make sure the county has good roads, public transport, cycleways and footpaths.
The plan, which has been in the making for the past year, has been drafted with the help of residents and businesses through two public consultations.
The overall aims of the transport plan are to :
- Encourage links to local, national and international destinations that promote a flourishing economy.
- Empower communities to support their own local transport solutions.
- Enable and promote travel choices that improve people’s health.
County Council Leader Martin Tett said: ‘This Plan is very clear about maintaining and enhancing our county’s special environment, and helping residents and businesses thrive and develop to become one of the strongest and most productive economies in the country.
It will play a key part in accessing funding, making sure new developments work for Buckinghamshire, and shaping the way we work to improve transport.‘
A copy of the Local Transport Plan is available to view on the Buckinghamshire County Council website.
