As detailed in the recommendation.


The Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Environment provided details of the Council’s response to the Welsh Government’s (WG) consultation documentation for the Draft National Transport Plan (NTP).


The Taith Board had agreed to provide a regional response to the Draft NTP which was agreed at a meeting on 13 February 2015.  In addition to the regional response, Flintshire County Council had prepared an individual County response, given its geographical position as one of the gateway authorities to North Wales. 


The response detailed the Councils view on the national transport priorities required to address the increasing local demands brought about by large scale development and the future proposed economic growth in the County and the North Wales region.  A summary of the key issues and transport priorities Flintshire provided in its consultation response were detailed in the report.


Members commented on the importance of the responses made by the Council, in particular the need for an upgraded interchange at Broughton to serve Broughton Retail Park and Airbus and to provide access to the Trunk Road Network, and the potential trunking of the A548.




That Flintshire County Council’s response to the Draft National Transport Plan be noted.
