Consultation Draft of the Council's Second Local Implementation Plan

This document presents the Consultation Draft of the Council's Second Local Implementation Plan (LIP2) for the period: 2011/12 to 2013/14. This is a statutory document required to be prepared by each London borough under the Greater London Authority Act 1999. Its purpose is to put forward the policy context and proposals of the borough for the implementation of the Mayor of London's Transport Strategy (MTS) in its area. In essence, it is a three-year delivery plan for the improvement, enhancement and maintenance of a sustainable transport system in the Borough. In addition, the document provides a long-term policy framework consistent with the MTS time horizon to 2031. Bexley's first LIP covered the period 2005/06 to 2010/11 and will remain valid until the end of March 2011.

Bexley's approach to transport planning and policy development has always been led by wider strategic considerations and local needs and aspirations. In accordance with TfL's guidance, this LIP is specifically objective-led. In the light of the MTS goals and the Borough's own vision and circumstances, we have identified ten objectives that have influenced the LIP proposals and delivery actions.

The document consists of three main parts made up of five chapters plus two appendices and can be opened accordingly. It is accompanied, in Appendix 2, by a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) Statement that sets out what action has been taken by the Borough during development of the LIP, to produce a better environmental outcome.

As required by the Mayor of London, the draft LIP2 was submitted to Transport for London (TfL) on 20 December 2010. In accordance with the Greater London Authority Act 1999, the Council now intends to consult with the residents and businesses of the Borough on the policies and proposals contained in this LIP. We're also consulting TfL, the neighbouring boroughs and local authorities, Metropolitan Police, representatives of disabled people, the emergency services, the Highways Agency, Network Rail, and relevant focus groups. This consultation will be for a period of two months and will expire at the end of February 2011.

The Final LIP will then be prepared, taking into consideration the feedback from this consultation for submission to TfL in April 2011 for the approval of the Mayor of London.

The approved document will also be placed on the Council's website in due course.

Consultation responses should be sent to:

For the attention of: Ashis Choudhury, Transport Consultant
