Every local authority in England outside London has an obligation to produce a Local Transport Plan for their area. A Local Transport Plan (LTP) assesses an area’s transport needs and challenges, and sets out different ways in which these challenges will be addressed.
The council has produced three previous LTPs:
LTP1 ran between 2001-2006
LTP2 was adopted between 2006-2011
LTP3 ran between 2011 and 2015.
We have now developed a new LTP which was formally adopted in April 2015, a summary of which is available:

Our new Local Transport Plan (LTP) Strategy sets out a comprehensive framework within which the council and its partners can plan transport improvements in the East Riding over the next 14 years (2015-2029). This strategy includes specific plans to address different elements of local transport such as road safety, cycling, bus, rail and community transport.
The council's Transport Asset Management Plan and our Network Management Plan are included as appendices to the LTP Strategy and can be found on our transport asset management page.
The accompanying LTP Implementation Plan sets out a three-year programme of individual transport schemes to be delivered between 2015 and 2018.
Throughout the development of the LTP extensive consultation has been undertaken with local residents, ward members and other key stakeholders. This has ensured that everyone has had the opportunity to contribute to the final plan, and allows us to prioritise schemes that best meet local needs while also delivering maximum value for money:

In recent years the Department of Transport (DfT) has made some extra funding available to local authorities to help them maintain their transport networks. For example, we were awarded £2.5 million from the government's Pothole Fund in 2014 to permanently fix potholes and complement our normal planned highway maintenance expenditure for 2014/15. We also received severe weather recovery funding in April 2014 following the wettest winter on record and additional highways maintenance funding in 2014/15.
One of the conditions of receiving this extra funding is that we publish a statement setting out how this was spent:

A Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) has been prepared to help us predict what impacts the strategies and schemes included in the Local Transport Plan may have on the environment. The SEA also includes a Habitats Regulation Assessment and a Health Impact Assessment. A statement summarising the SEA can be viewed here:

Details of how we spent funding from the Bus Service Operators Grant can be viewed in the annual report below:

Following the publication of the national Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy (CWIS) in April 2017, government guidance recommended that local authorities should develop Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plans (LCWIPs) for their area.
LCWIPs are a new strategic approach to identifying cycling and walking improvements required at the local level. They enable a long-term approach to developing local cycling and walking networks and form a vital part of the Government's strategy to increase the number of trips on foot or by cycle.
We have decided to develop LCWIPs for the 14 main settlements as part of the Local Transport Plan:
