Sustainable Transport, Walking and Cycling guidance

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

For London to be a sustainable city, we need new development to enable more people to move around the capital by walking, cycling and public transport. That means creating new walking routes and improving the cycle network, as well as ensuring we have enough transport infrastructure, such as bus garages, rail depots, or space for trams. And we need to safeguard land for major transport improvements, and consider how we can make the best use of car parks. London Plan policy T3 sets out the requirements for boroughs and planning applications relating to transport capacity, connectivity and safeguarding.

We have developed draft Sustainable Transport, Walking and Cycling guidance to support boroughs and applicants in meeting the requirements of the London Plan, and would like your feedback.
