Transport Strategy in Cheshire East
Local Transport Plan / South East Manchester Multi Modal Strategy
Manchester Multi Modal Strategy
The Local Transport Plan consultation closed at 11.59pm on Monday 25 June 2018.
We will analyse the feedback and this will be used to inform the LTP strategy and place-based transport plans. A summary of the feedback will be available on the CEC consultation website in due course.
Cheshire East Council have recently consulted on a new Local Transport Plan (LTP) which will cover the period 2018 – 2023. The updated strategy considers all forms of transport over the next 5 years (2018-2023). It is a framework for how transport will support wider policies to improve our economy, protect our environment and make attractive places to live, work and play. The Plan outlines the role transport will play in supporting the long term goals of Cheshire East.
In parallel, the Council is also working with Stockport Council to consult on a new South East Manchester Multi Modal (SEMMM) Strategy to identify solutions to traffic and travel problems experienced by stakeholders in the north of the Borough. Both the LTP and SEMMMS will provide a framework for strategic transport schemes benefitting Cheshire East so we need to ensure the two strategies are complementary.
Your views are important to us. You can tell us your views on the SEMMM Strategy to help shape the future of your area.
