Active Travel (Wales) Act 2013

Section 6 – Developing transport policies with regard to integrated network map

18.Local authorities are required to produce local transport plans under the Transport Act 2000. These are currently prepared jointly by local authorities on a regional basis. These plans set out the local transport policies for the region, including policies for the implementation in the region of the Wales Transport Strategy prepared by the Welsh Ministers pursuant to section 2(1) of the Transport (Wales) Act 2006.

19.Section 6 requires that local authorities must have regard to their integrated network maps in developing policies forming the basis of local transport plans. They will not be required to deliver all of the schemes within the maps, recognising that these are reliant on other factors, including statutory processes.  However, the policies and plans in the local transport plans will need to be set out in such a way as to facilitate the delivery of the routes and facilities in the integrated network maps.
