Local Transport Plan (LTP4)

We are currently developing the fourth Local Transport Plan (LTP4) for Shropshire.

The Local Transport Plan process is the key mechanism through which Local Authorities can set out the long-term strategy for highways, transport and mobility.

Transport and highways are vital to ensuring that everyone can have access to their daily needs and activities. They have a significant role to place in place-making, supporting communities, building the economy, protecting the environment and promoting good health.

Get involved

Engagement with Shropshire’s communities and stakeholders, and those we work with across our borders, is integral to the planning for the future. The LTP will need to demonstrate an understanding of the mobility needs of different people, places and activities in Shropshire.

We are currently working on developing twelve strategic themes for the LTP and we are looking to engage with stakeholders to help us identify the key challenges and to better understand the mobility needs of different people, places and activities in Shropshire.

There will be opportunities for different stakeholders to engage throughout the development process:

  • Strategic theme workshops - June 2021
  • Options and interventions - Summer 2021
  • Full public consultation on the draft LTP document - Autumn 2021

We are currently working on developing twelve strategic themes for the LTP and as an initial engagement activity we are holding hold a series of short online workshops with stakeholders to identify key challenges and to gather evidence at an early stage. Each workshop will focus on one of the strategic themes:

  • Education and skills
  • Economy and employment
  • Healthcare (access to services)
  • Retail and services
  • Tourism and leisure
  • First mile/last mile
  • Freight and logistics
  • Mass transit
  • Roads
  • Environment and climate change
  • Communities and wellbeing
  • Place

COVID-19 and decarbonisation are not identified as specific themes, but these factors will be a covered through all the workshop sessions in terms of the challenges and opportunities they present.
