LTPs identify priorities for maintaining and improving local transport systems, based on the needs and wants of residents and organisations in the region, and put forward plans for how they will be achieved. These improvements are then given funding to be put into action.
Following the Transport Act (2000), the first Local Transport Plan (LTP1) was introduced to cover the period between 2001 and 2006. It was replaced by a second plan (LTP2), which will came to an end in 2011. LTP3 has been developed and structured differently to previous plans in line with the Local Transport Act (2008).
Visit the Department for Transport’s (DfT) website for more information about LTPs.

The first plan was replaced in 2006 with the second plan, addressing issues around Accessibility, Air Quality, Congestion, Safer Roads and Asset Management. Its aim was to create a more integrated transport system that supports economic growth and enhances the quality of life of people of West Yorkshire.
