The geographical boundary of the Cheshire and Warrington Local Transport Body is consistent with the geography of the Cheshire and Warrington Local Enterprise Partnership. This covers the administrative areas of the three unitary local authorities, these being,
· Cheshire East Council (CEC);
· Cheshire West and Chester Council (CWACC); and
· Warrington Borough Council (WBC).
Cheshire and Warrington Local Enterprise Partnership has six strategic objectives that are critical to delivering its ambition on economic growth and prosperity. Of these infrastructure and connectivity has been assigned to the Cheshire and Warrington Local Transport Board as its primary responsibility.
Delivering new and improved infrastructure that secures a step change in connectivity will mean the actions of the Cheshire and Warrington Local Transport Board underpin the Cheshire and Warrington Local Enterprise Partnership priorities of:
· Providing an excellent location to do business;
· Providing an excellent location to live and work; and
· Ensuring fully functioning sustainable transport infrastructure
The Cheshire and Warrington Local Transport Board’s primary responsibility ensures that our transport investments support the growth conversation with Government and the local plans and regeneration proposals of the constituent local authorities. Based on the above, the single strategic objective for Cheshire and Warrington Local Transport Board is:
“To improve transport Infrastructure to secure significant connectivity gains in the support of economic growth and prosperity.”
