North Staffordshire Local Transport Plan 2006/07-2010/11 (LTP2)
We worked jointly with Staffordshire County Council to develop a North Staffordshire Local Transport Plan. It set out the strategies, targets, investment and spending programmes for the Major Urban Area of North Staffordshire for the period April 2006 until March 2011 (LTP2) as part of a long term strategy.
The North Staffordshire Local Transport Plan covered all of the North Staffordshire Major Urban Area, which includes Stoke-on-Trent and the more urban parts of Newcastle-under-Lyme and Staffordshire Moorlands. The plan was prepared jointly by Stoke-on-Trent City Council and Staffordshire County Council and was based on guidance and funding from government. The plan was developed using evidence from the North Staffordshire Integrated Transport Study and extensive consultation. The vision set out in the North Staffordshire Local Transport Plan is:
“To create and maintain an integrated and sustainable transport system for North Staffordshire to facilitate regeneration and to create opportunities for people to live, play and travel in a safe and pleasant environment.”
