Local Transport Body

What is the ‘LTB’?

The Local Transport Body (LTB) was the body responsible for making and overseeing key infrastructure investment decisions in the Sheffield City Region. This body has now been incorporated with the remit of the Combined Authority which was established in April 2014.

Background

On 23 January 2013, the Department for Transport announced a ten-year allocation of major scheme transport funding for Sheffield City Region.

This funding is to be spent on major infrastructure projects and will form part of the Sheffield City Region Investment Fund (SCRIF). SCRIF is a framework of funding streams to deliver essential strategic infrastructure to increase economic growth and jobs in the Sheffield City Region.

To satisfy the Department for Transport that Sheffield City Region is able to allocate and spend the funding appropriately, Sheffield City Region has established a body to make key decisions regarding this funding and to oversee investments. This body was known as the Sheffield City Region Local Transport Body (SCR LTB) and is now incorperated with the remit of the Combined Authority.
