The adoption of the planning process within the Planning Toolkit provides an approachwith three broad thrusts to understand current and future conditions within a region, explore andassess strategic LPT options for a Region and confirm and plan the overall Regional LPTMP (seeFigure 1.2). To support Regional LPTMP development, a series of transport analysis tools have beendeveloped including a multi-modal transport model, and GIS accessibility tools to support thedecisions made for the plan. Regional LPTMPs are produced with the ongoing engagement ofstakeholders to identify key issues and concerns and ensure the initiatives presented are focussedand deliverable.Page 4
