About the Local Transport Plan

We are currently in the early stages of developing a new Local Transport Plan (LTP) for the county.

The LTP sets out what, where and how we intend to invest in transport in Herefordshire. We are looking to tackle existing and future transport challenges. The plan will cover the period from 2024 to 2041.

The new LTP comes at an opportune time for the council to support wider ambitions. In particular, the LTP is closely linked to the council's emerging Local Plan. For example, investment in transport is required when planning for new housing development and land use, and the location and design of these will have an impact on travel patterns and the new infrastructure needed to support them.

The new LTP will cover the whole of Herefordshire, recognising the different characteristics of Hereford, the five market towns and our rural communities. It will contain two key elements:

  1. An overarching strategy setting out how investment in transport will help to achieve the economic, environmental, health and social ambitions of the council
  2. An implementation plan setting out a programme of schemes and projects which will include a wide range of types of transport options

The first stage is to understand your priorities for improving transport in the county.

The feedback we receive will help to shape the detail of the LTP, before we hold a wider public consultation on the proposals later in the year.

We expect to complete the final plan during the 2024/25 financial year.


The consultation ran for six weeks, from Monday 25 March to Tuesday 21 May 2024.
