To consider the 2040 Transport Delivery Plan/District Local Implementation Plan

Additional documents:

Minutes:

The Council received a report advising that alongside work to prepare a refreshed Greater Manchester Strategy (GMS) and the next version of the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework (GMSF), Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) has been working with the GMCA, the ten Greater Manchester councils and the Greater Manchester Mayor to prepare new, and updated, transport strategy documents that cover our entire city-region.

 

This work includes a refreshed version of our long-term, statutory local transport plan - the Greater Manchester Transport Strategy 2040 - and a final version of Our Five-Year Delivery Plan (2020-2025) which sets out the practical actions planned to deliver the Strategy over the next 5 years. In addition, ten new Local Implementation Plans have also been prepared (one for each Greater Manchester council) setting out transport priorities and smaller interventions to achieve these ambitions at a local level.

 

Resolved:

1.    That Council endorses the refreshed Greater Manchester Transport Strategy 2040 and the final version of Our Five-Year Delivery Plan for approval by GMCA;

2.    That the publication of the supporting Local Implementation Plan as an appendix to Our Five-Year Delivery Plan, acknowledging that these are “live” documents and will be subject to regular review and update as appropriate be approved;

3.    That amendments to the document be delegated to the Director of Economy in consultation with the Cabinet Member for Quality of Place.

Minutes:

Cabinet considered the report of the Director of Economy which advised that alongside work to prepare a refreshed Greater Manchester Strategy (GMS) and the next version of the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework (GMSF), Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) has been working with the GMCA, the ten Greater Manchester councils and the Greater Manchester Mayor to prepare new, and updated, transport strategy documents that cover our entire city-region. 

 

This work includes a refreshed version of our long-term, statutory local transport plan - the Greater Manchester Transport Strategy 2040 - and a final version of Our Five-Year Delivery Plan (2020-2025) which sets out the practical actions planned to deliver the Strategy over the next 5 years. In addition, ten new Local Implementation Plans have also been prepared (one for each Greater Manchester council) setting out transport priorities and smaller interventions to achieve these ambitions at a local level. 

 

In considering the submitted report, Cabinet were advised that the Communities, Regeneration and Environment Overview and Scrutiny Committee had requested that a number of matters be looked at including roundabouts in Middleton and Metrolink access to the Borough and had recommended that these and any other minor amendments be delegated to the Director of Economy in consultation with the Cabinet Member for Quality of Place.

 

Alternatives considered:

 

The 2040 Transport Strategy and Delivery Plans, alongside the GMSF, will help articulate to residents and Government how we will deliver sustainable economic growth.  It will also identify transport improvements which will need to take place to support those strategic growth locations.  Together, these documents offer an integrated approach to transport and land use planning, by identifying the strategic transport interventions required to deliver the scale of growth set out in the GMSF.  

 

At a local level, it is also hoped that the LIP will enable us to better articulate the transport and minor interventions that need to be delivered or developed in the short term, to support the likes of our Growth Plan, Rail Corridor Strategy and Town Centre plans as well as Right-Mix and Carbon Reduction targets.  It will also be helpful when it comes to setting out a programme of priority local transport and minor works interventions for the next five years, and will help to provide a basis against which future local transport and minor works funding is allocated for local delivery, as well as support bids for other non GM funding.  

 

To not approve these documents could result in the loss of significant future external funding opportunities for the Borough.  

 

Resolved:

1.    That Council be recommended:

a)    to endorse the refreshed Greater Manchester Transport Strategy 2040 and the final version of Our Five-Year Delivery Plan for approval by the Greater Manchester Combined Authority;

b)    to approve the publication of the supporting Local Implementation Plan as an appendix to Our Five-Year Delivery Plan, acknowledging that these are “live” documents and will be subject to regular review and update as appropriate; 

c)    to delegate authority to the Director of Economy in consultation with the  ...  view the full minutes text for item 63
