Area Transport Plan
An Area Transport Plan for the city has been written to assist in the development of future projects and programmes, with the aim of providing a high quality and integrated transport network. This document provides the context and evidence base for projects we would like to take forward in future years.
The West Midlands Local Transport Plan 2011-2026 “Making the Connections” sets down the strategic principles of smarter management, smarter choices and smarter investment which will provide a major catalyst for economic growth and regeneration. Future projects will contribute to the five objectives, ten themes and fourteen targets.
The priorities of the current Birmingham City Council administration, as set out in the Council Business Plan & Budget 2014+, provide a frame of reference for scheme development. The core mission for the city is to make Birmingham a ‘fair city’, a ‘prosperous city’ and a ‘democratic city’ and the priorities are:
- Protecting the most vulnerable citizens of the city from the impact of cuts
- Protecting the highest priority services and delivering them more efficiently
- Taking forward the policy development programmes most critical to our goals
- Continuing to work towards our objectives and getting the most from the significantly reduced resources available.
By looking at key areas of road safety, congestion, public transport, cycling and walking networks, as well as discussions with stakeholders in the constituencies, we have been able to highlight deficiencies and issues. As a result of the data analysis and these discussions, a programme of value for money schemes for future years has been developed to tackle the issues highlighted.
The Area Transport Plan is split into East, North West and South. These areas align with the equivalent planning areas, the exceptions being, that information on all wards of Erdington and Hall Green Constituencies are to be found in the East area. Though Ladywood falls into all three planning areas, information for this Constituency is included in the North West section.
