Brighton and Hove approves a new Local Transport Plan

27 May 2011. Brighton and Hove City council approved its Local Transport Plan (LTP) with all three main parties giving the document their unanimous support.

The plan was due to be approved in March - but the Tory admin delayed the council debate until after local elections 5 May.

A source said that when the Green Party won control of the council they adopted the plan without amendments to avoid delay since an LTP is required for government grants.

In any event the plan was supposed to be politically independent and produced in line with national policy which encourages sustainable transport according the Government's January White paper on Transport.
