Cheshire West and Chester council’s next Local Transport Plan (LTP3) covers the 15 year period from 2011 to 2025. This is in contrast to earlier plans which covered much shorter periods of time. Consequently, it is important that the plan is bold and ambitious, as it will cover the period of time when the problems of obesity, climate change, peak oil, and increasing car usage combine in a ‘perfect storm’ of transport challenges.
In view of the importance of LTP3, the Chester Cycling Campaign has taken care to produce a very detailed response to the council’s LTP3 consultation. The growing professional expertise amongst the membership of the Campaign has meant that we have been able to produce an authoritative and critical submission, which we hope may significantly influence the council’s future transport strategy.
Please take the time to read some of the documents published below. Read the Executive Summary to get an overview of the approach we have taken. If you have time, read the Main Text so that you can fully appreciate the Campaign’s vision for the role of cycling in Chester’s transport strategy.
Our submission is in five parts:
- LTP3 Chester Cycling Campaign Executive Summary
- LTP3 Chester Cycling Campaign Full Submission
- LTP3 Chester Cycling Campaign Appendix A – BMA Note
- LTP3 Chester Cycling Campaign Appendix B – CTC Guidance
- LTP3 Chester Cycling Campaign Appendix C – Smarter Choices
If you would like to work with us to make these ideas a reality, then please feel free to become involved with the Campaign.
Comments are welcome on our LTP3 submission.
