Transport policy

Transport is one of the most important parts of day-to-day life in the borough. We use transport every day to go to work, school, visit the shops and friends, and to access services. Whether we make journeys by car, tube, train, bus, motorcycle, on foot or by bicycle, we rely on the transport system being safe, reliable, convenient and affordable. The relative attractiveness of different modes of transport influences our choice of travel.

A good quality transport system is also necessary to support the efficient carrying out of business in the borough and reliable, cost-effective deliveries and servicing of property. Making our transport system better will help our borough maintain and improve its position as a good place to live, work and do business.

Local Implementation Plan (LIP)

Our transport plan for the borough is known as the Local Implementation Plan (LIP). We consulted on a draft Third Local Implementation Plan from 30 November 2018 until 11 January 2019. The plan sets out how we propose to implement the Mayor of London's Transport Strategy.

Although the consultation has closed you can read the draft Third Local Implementation Plan. A revised version taking into account consultation response will be submitted to Transport for London in February 2019.

Until the Third Local Implementation Plan is approved, the Second LIP remains in place. This was published in 2011 based on the previous Mayor’s Transport Strategy. Download a copy of the Second Local Implementation Plan and its appendices.

The Council is allocated funding for LIP proposals by Transport for London. Reports about LIP and LIP funding are taken to the Strategic Planning and Transportation Overview and Scrutiny Committee. To view these reports, see the Strategic Planning and Transportation Overview and Scrutiny Committee.

Cycling Strategy

We produced a Cycling Strategy for the borough following consultation in 2015.
