North Central Growth and Transport Plan Consultation and south Central

Hertfordshire County Council has developed the North Central Growth and Transport Plan (NCGTP) which covers the northern end of the A1(M), including the towns of Stevenage, Hitchin, Letchworth Garden City, Baldock and Royston, and key transport links between these towns and to surrounding areas. The NCGTP considers the key problems and opportunities which currently exist or may in the future on the transport network and identifies what types of interventions are needed to improve the transport network.

NCGTP identifies a set of 15 intervention packages which are based in towns and on key routes between them. The Plan is set out to enable readers to identify and focus on the intervention packages for their areas rather than having to read the document in its entirety. The packages are divided as follows:

Stevenage Packages 1 -3

Stevenage connections to other towns Packages 4 –6

Hitchin Packages 7 – 9

Hitchin connections to other towns Packages 10-11

Letchworth Garden City Package 12

Baldock Package 13

Connections to Central Bedfordshire towns Package 14

Royston Package 15

The plan has been developed with support from HCC's consultant AECOM and has received input from district and borough councils in the area during the development of the Plan, including workshops with key officers, County Councils and District Council portfolio holders, and sought feedback during development and on earlier drafts.
