The Local Transport Plan (LTP) is a statutory document setting out how transport in Warrington will be maintained and improved over a period of time, usually five years. 

Our LTP includes local transport priorities and it helps to decide where we need to spend money to make transport better now, and in the future. It also includes plans which explain how we’ll do what it says in the LTP.

We collect information from lots of different places to help us create a transport plan - we call this the ‘evidence base’. We also look at issues like the environment, the economy, the history of the area and the needs of local people.

Local Transport Plan 4 (LTP4)

The latest draft transport plan says that Warrington should be a thriving, attractive, and well-connected place. Walking and cycling should be made easier, and public transport should be high quality so that more of us will use it. 

We started the consultation for LTP4 in April 2019. We put all of the information and supporting documents on our website and asked you, via social media and the local news, to tell us what you thought, either by filling in an online survey, or coming along to a consultation event. The consultation ended in June 2019 and the plan will now be taken forward for approval.

Local Transport Plan 3

Warrington’s current Local Transport Plan is LTP3, which was adopted in March 2011.

Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan

We want walking or cycling to be the first choice for everyday journeys in Warrington, and the Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP) helps us to do this. We created the plan based on local knowledge and information from the evidence base. In 2017 we held transport summits with interested organisations, and there was a public consultation stage for the Local Plan, so we used feedback from both of these.

In early 2019 we put the draft LCWIP out to public consultation alongside LTP4.

The final Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan will set out how we can and will improve the town and make sure we can all walk or cycle as much as possible, reducing our reliance on cars.
