Local Transport & Active Travel Strategy

Background

The Scottish Government has updated the National Transport Strategy and Strathclyde Partnership for Transport (SPT), the regional transport partnership for the west of Scotland, is in the process of updating the Regional Transport Strategy.

In 2020, North Ayrshire Council entered into a partnership to deliver the Ayrshire Growth Deal. The Deal presents a once-in-a-generation opportunity to transform the economic prospects of the area.

We need to update the Local Transport & Active Travel Strategy (LT&ATS) to take account of these policies and partnerships.

We have begun the process of producing a new Local Transport Strategy to produce a new Local Transport Strategy which will include an Active Travel Strategy that focuses on walking, cycling and wheeling.

Aims

The new Local Transport & Active Travel Strategy will set out the policies to be adopted and the actions to be implemented to guide the planning and improvement of the local transport and active travel networks. It will also outline behaviour change initiatives aimed at supporting and encouraging people to use the sustainable transport networks more often. A detailed action plan will identify actions and priorities for the period of the strategy.

The new Local Transport & Active Travel Strategy will refer to all types of transport, including walking, wheeling, cycling, bus, rail, ferry and car and consider how to integrate these types of transport to make travel by several modes easier for all.

What you can help us with

We need your help to understand what you think are the priorities for improving transport in North Ayrshire. We want to understand what you think are the issues and barriers to improving transport and where you think there are opportunities for improving transport for all. For example, this could be new pedestrian links or cycle routes or improved bus services in your local area or between towns.
