The Local Implementation Plan (LIP) is a statutory document, required by the Greater London Authority Act 1999, which sets out how we intend to implement the Mayor’s Transport Strategy (MTS) within the borough.
Each borough has to produce a Local Implementation Plan which must be approved by the Mayor. WWRA has had a quick look at the documents but we feel it does not impact on our area and therefore we will not comment as a Residents’ Association. You may feel differently. The consultation is open until 13 January 2019.

“THIRD LOCAL IMPLEMENTATION PLAN CONSULTATION
We are consulting on our third Local Implementation Plan for Transport (LIP3). This sets out the borough’s approach to transport, including our ambition to improve road safety and reduce road danger, and investment priorities for both the next three years as well as in the longer term to 2041 at a more strategic level.
Bromley’s LIP3 sets out how the council will deliver and work with partners such as rail operators to deliver an efficient and high quality transport network that safely supports borough residents, visitors to the borough for work and leisure and the borough’s economy.
Bromley’s population is expected to increase, with the level of population growth presenting challenges for the borough’s transport networks. If this growth in demand for travel were to be accompanied by an equal growth in car use, congestion would get worse, with slower journeys for residents and businesses and a probable deterioration in air quality. To accommodate the projected increase in demand for travel, we need to make the most efficient use of the capacity we have on our transport networks. Given this, the LIP3 outlines the borough’s priorities, which include improving road safety by reducing collisions and casualties on the roads, making it easier to walk and choose to cycle, reducing congestion and working with partner organisations to deliver new public transport connectivity such as between the borough’s main centres and for example Canary Wharf.
We are keen to understand your views, which will be considered before the LIP3 is finalised, with the plans submitted to the Mayor of London in the early part of 2019. “
