Connecting Cornwall: 2030 Consultation
What is Connecting Cornwall: 2030?

Connecting Cornwall is the third Local Transport Plan for Cornwall and will be a 20-year strategy to 2030 underpinned by a series of three-year delivery plans.

The previous two Local Transport Plans for Cornwall have covered five-year periods from 2001-2006 and 2006-2011. In its latest guidance the Government has granted local authorities the freedom to set their strategy over a much longer time frame to allow more ambitious visions and goals to be realised.

People want and need to move around to access services that help them live their lives. The name Connecting Cornwall represents the role that transport has in connecting people to services, connecting communities, connecting businesses to the rest of the UK and the world and connecting people to their local environment.

Connecting Cornwall sets out a strategy that supports our communities by improving their access to services in a way that is designed to last and protects future generations.

Connecting Cornwall closely aligns with the two overarching strategy and planning documents for Cornwall that cover the delivery of all our services, the Sustainable Community Strategy and the Local Development Framework.

Cornwall’s Sustainable Community Strategy joins up issues that affect the economic, social and environmental well-being of Cornwall under a coherent vision for Cornwall and is currently being reviewed for publication at the end of the year.

Cornwall’s Local Development Framework is currently being developed for publication in 2012 and will set out the planning framework for housing and employment in Cornwall for the next 20 years.

The fact that Connecting Cornwall directly supports these two important strategies illustrates that ‘transport is a means to an end, not an end in itself’, which has been the foundation of Cornwall’s transport plans since 2001 and continues to be a leading theme of this longer-term strategy.

The credibility of this transport strategy depends on its long term deliverability not just its immediate impact. The delivery of the Connecting Cornwall strategy over 20 years will be achieved through a series of implementation plans produced every three years. The transport improvements included within each plan will be influenced by the priorities for Cornwall and the funding available at that time.
