As mentioned at minute no. 23 of these minutes, a statement from Dr J T Walker, Chairman of the Cycling Opportunities Group, Salisbury (COGS) was previously circulated to Cabinet. Cllr Tonge undertook to provide a response to COGS.


Cllr Dick Tonge, Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport presented a report which sought Cabinet approval of the Wiltshire Local Transport Plan  for 2011 – 2026 (LTP3) for onward recommendation to Council at its meeting on 22 February 2011.

Cabinet noted that the LTP was a statutory document with a new Wiltshire LTP requiring to be published by 31 March 2011.
