myjourney is the new Local Transport Plan covering all of Central Bedfordshire. In a nutshell, myjourney sets out Central Bedfordshire's aims and objectives for transport over the next 15 years, and how we plan to deliver them. myjourney reflects national Government guidance on transport, local transport priorities, local travel patterns and how much money there is available. It is probably the most important transport-related document for Central Bedfordshire.
myjourney is very important to how the Council delivers transport services, improvements, maintenance and management. The priorities in myjourney sets out in what areas we will focus most of our effort and resources, and what schemes and services that you will see on the ground. In fact, without these priorities, many transport schemes delivered in your area over the last 10 years may never have seen the light of day!
Now that we have completed the work on the main Local Transport Plan 3 document, our focus is now shifting to developing some more Local Area Transport Plans and Strategies. In particular, we are working on the Public Transport, Road Maintenance, and Car Parking Strategies. Watch this space for more information.
As part of the process to put together the Local Transport Plan (LTP) it is a legal requirement to conduct an Environmental Assessment of the plan’s objectives and implications. As part of this assessment we will also consider health implications by incorporating a Health Impact Assessment.
This process is split in to two key stages – these being:
- Scoping - this asks for comments on the scope, level of detail and appropriate consultation period of the Environmental Report and runs for five weeks.
- The Environmental Report - views are sought on the Environmental Report in conjunction with the LTP. The consultation period runs for twelve weeks, although this can be shortened or lengthened at the transport authorities discretion.
