York Local Transport Strategy Consultation

Following the approval of the 10 year strategies for Climate Change, Health and Economy, the emerging Local Plan is also making clear spatial distribution of transport demands for the next 15 years. The Transport Strategy will help deliver the Local Plan and 10 year strategies, including the carbon emissions reduction target from Transport as set out in the Climate Change Strategy.


This report will seek to commence a consultation on the high level principles and priorities for York that will underpin the Transport Strategy covering York.  This will be required regardless of a devolution, as it will shape both the city councils policies and in context of the current proposed creation of Mayoral Combined Authority will help shape their priorities as they take on the role of the strategic Transport authority for the York and North Yorkshire region.


Following consultation and pending guidance from Department for Transport further reports will be brought to Executive to adopt the draft Strategy which will then feed into a new Local Transport Plan which is anticipated to be required by the Department for Transport in 2024.

Consultation process

The 10 Year Strategies were developed over a period of 18 months by speaking to residents, businesses, community groups and partners.

The Local Plan was submitted to the Planning Inspector in 2018 and has been subject to significantly public consultation and 11 weeks of public Inquiry.

The Our Big Conversation attitudinal survey helped us understand what’s important for the people who live, work and study in our city.

Over 2,000 participants, including residents and businesses, took part to tell us about different aspects of living in the city, which helped inform our 10 Year Strategies.

A cross party working group have helped advise officers on the development of the documents and the high level principles.

The next step is to consult stakeholders and residents to build on these previous consultations and consult on the themes and priorities once approved by Executive.

Equality Impact Assessment Completed?: EIA will be considered as part of the report.
