Issue details

Development of a new York Local Transport Strategy

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.
