The SEStran Governance Scheme collects together the key documents which form the basis for South East Scotland Transport Partnership’s (SEStran’s) decision making. It is made up of the following documents:
SEStran, Sustrans, City of Edinburgh Council and East Lothian Council investigated the feasibility of creating an upgraded cycle link between Musselburgh and Portobello. In 2015 the Strategic Cross Boundary Cycle Development Report identified the B6415/ A199 Musselburgh Harbour as a “missing link” in the active travel opportunities within the Edinburgh area.

We are pleased to share a report from the National Records of Scotland (NRS) outlining the assessment of SEStrans Records Management Plan (RMP) by the Public Records (Scotland) Act 2011 Assessment Team following its submission to the Keeper on 30th January 2017.
The assessment considered whether the RMP of the South East of Scotland Transport Partnership was developed with proper regard to the 14 elements of the Keeper’s statutory Model Records Management Plan (the Model Plan) under section 8(3) of the Act, and whether in this respect it complies with it and the specific requirements of the Act.
The RMP was assessed by the Public Records (Scotland) Act Assessment Team on behalf of the Keeper. Assessors used the checklist elements listed in section 5, to establish whether the South East of Scotland Transport Partnership’s RMP was developed with proper regard to the elements of the Model Plan and is compliant with the Act. The assessment also considered whether there was sufficient supporting evidence of such compliance.
The outcome of the assessment and the Keeper’s decision on whether the RMP of the South East of Scotland Transport Partnership complies with the Act can be found under section 7 of this report with relevant recommendations. The full report can be viewed below.
Under the Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties) (Scotland) Regulations 2016, listed public bodies are required to produce a Board Diversity Succession Plan. This document aims to outline the current make-up of the SEStran Partnership Board and to demonstrate ways in which SEStran will commit to making progress on improving the diversity of our Board. SEStran recognises that increasing diversity on the Board will encourage new and innovative thinking and maximise use of talent, leading to better decision making and governance.
SEStran in our projects, priorities and policies will treat all employees and stakeholders with dignity, fairness and respect. Equality and diversity are essential preconditions to all our strategic objectives for the organisation, not just to the continuous improvement in our achievement of our Public-Sector Equality Duties. Equality mainstreaming is a corporate aim for our decision-making, we need to consider and co-design the outcomes of actions for all groups, to seek to intervene at the earliest opportunity to prevent negative outcomes and sustainably resource actions and positive outcomes.
The document outlines where as a small public body SEStran has sought and will continue to seek to continuously improve our processes, policies and projects to address the need to eliminate discrimination, foster good relations and enhance opportunity.
