Somerset’s Local Transport Plan (named Somerset’s Future Transport Plan) sets out our long-term strategy for getting the best from transport.

The Future Transport Plan sets out our transport policy for the next 15 years. It describes the challenges we face and the policies, strategies, plans and investments that will help us tackle these challenges. It covers the period between 2011 and 2026 and replaces Somerset’s Second Local Transport Plan, which finished in March 2011.
