Transport policy

How we choose to travel and the efficiency and effectiveness of our transport networks affect our economy, our environment, our ability to access services and opportunities, our communities and our health.

Each Scottish local authority is required to produce a Local Transport Strategy (LTS). Stirling's Local Transport Strategy sets out the Council's transport policies and programmes which support the Council's and the Stirling Community Planning Partnership's economic, social and environmental objectives. Stirling's LTS also seeks to support the national and regional transport strategies.

Local Transport Strategy

Within Stirling the Local Transport Strategy document sets out the Council's overarching objectives.

Monitoring and Review
