Local implementation plan (Sutton transport plan)
The Sutton Transport Plan forms the council’s statutory Local Implementation Plan (LIP) which is a requirement of the Greater London Authority Act (1999) and sets out how the council will implement the Mayor’s Transport Strategy at a borough level. The plan outlines how the council’s transport policies comply with the MTS and South London Sub-Regional Transport Plan.
It also set out an investment programme for the three years from 2011-2014 listing the transport schemes that the council intended to implement over this period as well as outlining future schemes that the council will implement as funding arises. An updated three-year LIP Delivery Plan was submitted to TfL in 2013, covering the period from April 2014 to April 2017. A new LIP is due to be produced once the new Mayor's Transport Strategy is published.
An annual LIP funding bid is submitted to Transport for London every October setting out the council’s transport scheme programme for the following financial year. This forms the basis of the annual LIP grant to the council from TfL.
