Transport Policy

West Somerset Council lobbies for West Somerset interests on transport issues, participates in the Local Transport Plan process and part funds certain community transport initiatives. It provides active support of the Somerset Moped Loans Scheme, Rural Transport Partnership and West Somerset Community Car Schemes Project.

The Somerset Local Transport Plan sets out a strategy for transport from 2001-2006 and 2006-2011 and represent the County Council’s bid to the government for funds for transport projects.

West Somerset Council and the other districts have helped to formulate the plan with Somerset County Council through member and officer representation on steering groups. At the local level the main delivery mechanism for transport projects will be through identified actions in the Western Somerset Economic Development and Access Strategy.
