During our first LTP period, we submitted APRs each July to Government. Each APR reports on delivery by the eight partner Authorities, updates the public and allows Government to assess our transport investment and progress towards targets.
The APR also forms the basis of an annual appraisal that feeds into each Authority’s Comprehensive Performance Assessment. This process has, in some years, led to more funding being allocated to our area in a following year.
We have developed systems to co-ordinate the expenditure programmes and progress towards targets across the eight partner Authorities. We will continue to refine our systems in order to monitor our own progress and to satisfy Government requirements for future APRs.
