In November 2021, the Council adopted a new Sustainable Transport Strategy Supplementary Planning Document (SPD). A copy of the Strategy is available below:

Sustainable Transport Strategy SPD (2021)

The Strategy is designed to create opportunities for residents to travel safely, actively and healthily around the borough, and to support Sutton’s growth. 

As well as giving residents more choice, the Strategy aims to improve their quality of life by improving road safety, reducing air pollution and making transport more accessible, especially for children, families, older people and other people who are vulnerable.

In addition, the Strategy has the status of a Supplementary Planning Document. It contains planning guidance on car clubs, transport assessments, travel plans, construction logistics plans, freight servicing plans and parking management plans. 

The Car Clubs SPD (2007) and the Transport and Travel Plans Assessment (2008) are now revoked.
