Welcome to our third Local Transport Plan (LTP3) where you will find details on Slough’s long-term strategy for transport.
This LTP covers 2011 to 2026. It sets out our framework to maintain and improve the transport network and services over that time. It has been shaped by the priorities set out in our Sustainable Community Strategy.
Slough is a small and densely packed urban authority with few opportunities for significant new transport infrastructure. As we work under tight financial constraints the LTP has been developed so we provide value for money, mainly through maximising use of existing networks and services.
We will make sure we plan and deliver improvements in partnership with those responsible for delivering a wide range of services and transport, such as bus and train operators and taxi firms. This means we can deliver more targeted, effective and better value improvements to transport.
The LTP3 documents are made up of three main components:
All LTPs by law must be assessed to make sure there is minimal impact on the environment, known as a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA).
An early draft of the LTP went through a round of consultation with stakeholders and the general public in December 2010/January 2011. Comments and suggestions were taken on board for the final version of the LTP.
