(b)send a copy of it to the Secretary of State (in the case of an authority whose area is in England) or the National Assembly for Wales (in the case of an authority whose area is in Wales) and to such other persons (if any) as may be specified in guidance under section 112(1).

(4)The authority must also—

(a)cause a copy of their local transport plan to be made available for inspection (at all reasonable hours) at such places as they think fit,

(b)give notice, by such means as they think expedient for bringing it to the attention of the public, as to the places at which a copy of it may be inspected, and
