The Transport Decarbonisation Plan committed to drive decarbonisation and transport improvements at a local level by making quantifiable carbon reductions a fundamental part of local transport planning and funding. Following a public consultation, the updated Local Transport Plan guidance will be published in 2022. Alongside this, we will publish additional guidance on quantifiable carbon reductions, to help local authorities make decisions on local transport interventions from quantitative assessment of carbon impacts at a strategic planning stage.
