Local Government Targets

Volume 454: debated on Thursday 14 December 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what targets his Department sets for local authorities. (104908)

The Department does not set targets for local authorities.

It does advise local authorities (outside London) that targets for 14 to 17 indicators (depending on local circumstances) should be included within their local transport plans. The indicators are listed in annex A of the Department’s Full Guidance on Local Transport Plans (December 2004), published on the Department’s website. The levels of all targets set are matters for local authorities to determine within the context of their overall priorities.
