Local Transport Strategy

New Local Transport Strategy

East Dunbartonshire Council is working on a new Local Transport Strategy (LTS) for the area. The LTS will set out the Council’s transport strategy, Transport Planning   Objectives and a series of actions and interventions to enhance transport and travel across East Dunbartonshire.

The first stage in producing the LTS was to publish a Transport Options Report for consultation. The Transport Options Report set out preferred and alternative options for active travel, public transport, roads and parking. The report set out options for the whole area and options specific to individual community areas.  The consultation was carried out between 3 December 2018 and 11 February 2019 in order to understand community and stakeholder views on the options and potential changes. The Transport Options Report can be found in the documents list.

All of the feedback received has been considered and helped to inform the Draft Local Transport Strategy 2020-2025.

Members of the Place, Neighbourhood & Corporate Assets Committee approved publication of the draft Strategy and consultation process at a recent meeting.

Further information on the Draft LTS consultation period can be found at the following link: https://www.eastdunbarton.gov.uk/draft-local-transport-strategy-lts

The Council will communicate progress on producing the LTS on this website and through our newsletters
