Local implementation plan (Sutton transport plan)
The Local Implementation Plan (LIP) 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 Mayors Transport Strategy (MTS), the South London Sub-Regional Transport Plan and elements of the London Plan.
Following the publication of the most recent MTS in March 2018, boroughs were required to produce a new (third) LIP to cover the period from 1 April 2019 to March 2041. A draft was released for public consultation in November and December 2018, and approved by the Mayor of London on 12 April 2019. The new document is available below:
The LIP also sets out an investment programme for the three years from 2019-2021, listing the transport schemes that the council intended to implement over this period as well as outlining future schemes and ambitions that the council will deliver as funding opportunities arise. Separately, 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.
