Hounslow Transport Strategy

On 13 March this year, the Mayor of London published the Mayor’s Transport Strategy, setting out the policies and proposals to transform London’s streets, improve public transport and create opportunities for new homes and jobs in the capital over the next two decades. To achieve this, the Mayor wants to encourage more people to walk, cycle and use public transport across the capital, with a vision to see 80% of all trips in London to be made on foot, by cycle or by using public transport by 2041.

In response to this Hounslow Council is required to publish a Local Implementation Plan (LIP). This is the third Hounslow LIP and will replace the LIP 2011 – 2031. The document describes how the council will implement the Mayor’s policies and proposals on a local level whilst responding to the unique challenges and opportunities present in the borough. This new plan, once adopted, will set out a blueprint for the development of transport infrastructure and policy in the borough across the next two decades.

Prior to adopting this new Local Implementation Plan (LIP), we want to gather feedback from across the community on the borough’s proposals. We are therefore launching a public consultation which will run until Wednesday 2 January 2019.

For more details and to have your say on the new draft Hounslow Transport Strategy (LIP) please go to: https://haveyoursay.hounslow.gov.uk/traffic-and-transport/hounslows-local-implementation-plan/

We are also hosting a LIP open evening on the 11 December at the Hounslow Civic Centre from 5pm to 8pm. This will be made up of a workshop session running throughout with a Q&A with senior Councillors and officers at 6.30pm in the main Council chamber.
