Decision Maker: Executive

Decision status: Decision Made

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


Purpose of Report: To present a draft Local Transport Strategy (LTS) for York, a consultation plan and governance arrangements for further work on the LTS. If accepted, the York LTS will become an input into the Local Transport Plan being developed with North Yorkshire Council, which will be submitted by the York and North Yorkshire Combined Authority, in their role as Local Transport Authority for York and North Yorkshire after May 2024.

The Executive will be asked to approve the LTS as a basis for consultation and approve the consultation timescale and scope, governance arrangements and formation of a working group to assist with transport policy making and delivery in York.

Administrative error - this should have been allocated to October Executive not September as previously published.

                        ii.         Approved the proposed consultation process (Annex A to this report);

                      iii.         Approved the establishing of an Expert Group to advise the Council, the terms of reference for which are attached as Annex C to this report.


Reason:     To enable consultation to commence in November to allow a Strategy to be put before Full Council in March 2024 and adopted by City of York Council for presentation to the Mayoral Combined Authority and the newly elected mayor at the start of their term of office.
