Public Consultation on a new draft Local Transport Plan for Hertfordshire

We are pleased to be able to present our new draft Local Transport Plan which will be used to shape the long term development of Hertfordshire’s transport system.

 By 2031 there will be 175,000 more people living in Hertfordshire using the transport system.

What is this plan for?

This plan sets out how transport can help deliver a positive future vision of Hertfordshire. As well as providing for safe and efficient travel, transport has a major input into wider policies such as economic  growth, meeting housing needs, improving public health and reducing environmental damage. It also considers how future planning decisions and emerging technology might affect the way that transport needs to be provided in the longer term.

Effective transport links and improving accessibility will offer a greater choice and availability of employment, access to education and training opportunities which will improve living standards.

This plan accelerates the transition from a previous transport strategy that was largely car based to a more balanced approach which caters for all forms of transport and seeks to encourage a switch from the private car to sustainable transport wherever possible. The Local Transport Plan sets out the objectives, policies, and key schemes that will achieve this switch.

Hertfordshire County Council would like to hear your views on the new draft Local Transport Plan. To assist you in consulting on the draft Local Transport Plan, and giving your feedback on it, we have set up a consultation page accompanied by a small number of questions.
