Local Transport Plan
The 1998 Transport White Paper ‘A New Deal for Transport: Better for Everyone’ challenged local authorities to develop and deliver sustainable integrated transport strategies. The first Local Transport Plan was published in July 2001 in order to deliver upon this challenge.
The LTP sets out the transport strategy for the local authority area following wide consultation. It includes an implementation programme for the delivery of the strategy which integrates both government objectives for transport and the Councils strategic objectives.
The latest Local Transport Plan (LTP3) covers the period 2011 to 2026 and builds on the achievements made during LTP1 and LTP2 which covered the preceding 10 years. There has been a change of focus since the previous plans were written with a new emphasis on ‘localism’ and a more flexible approach in terms of the timescale of the plan. LTP3 covers a 15 year period that better aligns with the Rutland Local Development Framework, the document which shapes the way in which the County develops to 2026 and beyond. LTP3 consists of three parts, the evidence base, the strategy and the implementation plan. There are also three assessments carried out in respect to LTP3, the Strategic Environmental Assessment, the Health Impact Assessment and the Equality Impact Assessment.
LTP3 has been developed around the framework of the 7 Strategic Aims that guide the work of both Rutland County Council and Rutland’s Sustainable Community Strategy, they are:
- Maintaining high levels of employment and a thriving economy
- Improving access to services
- Creating a safer community
- Protecting the rural economy
- Promoting good health and wellbeing
- Increasing our cultural, sport and recreational offer
- Creating a brighter future for all
Copies of all the Local Transport Plans can be viewed at any of the Rutland Libraries or at the Council Offices. Copies are also available on CD-Rom for a small fee.

The Local Transport Plan 2006-2011 (LTP2) (pdf file)
In March 2006 our second Local Transport Plan was published, covering the period 2006-2011. The plan sets out the transport strategy for Rutland based upon a thorough review of transport needs and includes details of how the strategy will be delivered over the five years of the plan. LTP2 supersedes LTP1 but continues to build on the the foundations laid down during the life of the first plan.
The Local Transport Plan (LTP2) 2006-2011 other documents
So that we know how well we are doing in the delivery of our transport strategy we monitor and manage our actions througout the plan period. At certain intervals during the five year plan period we are required to produce progress reports to formally review our progress.
LTP2 Progress Report, December 2008 (pdf file)
In December 2008 we reported on our progress in the delivery of LTP2 to the Government Office East Midlands (GOEM) and the Department for Transport (DfT). The report reviewed our performance to date, focused on our successes and the things that we have found challenging during the first 2 years of the plan. It also looked ahead at the challenges we are likely to face during the remaining 3 Years of LTP2 and how we plan to address them and at the things that we need to consider and plan for beyond 2011.
The Local Transport Plan 2001-2006 (LTP1) (pdf file)
In July 2001 we published the first Local Transport Plan which set out our five year transport strategy for the period 2001-2006. The objectives of LTP1 were:
- To improve rural transport/reduce car use
- To improve access to services
- To address personal and road safety issues
- To maintain and improve environmental quality
- To care for existing assets
LTP1 Delivery Report 2006 (pdf file)
In July 2006 we produced a Delivery Report on our first Local Transport Plan which looked at our performance across the whole five years of the plan period. The Delivery Report brought together information from the Annual Progress Reports (APRs) which reviewed how well we were doing on delivering our objectives each year. The APRs and the Delivery Report were assessed by the Department for Transport.
