Hounslow's Transport Strategy (Local Implementation Plan 3)

Closes 2 Jan 2019

Opened 5 Nov 2018

Overview

Hounslow Borough Council’s third Transport Local Implementation Plan (LIP3) sets out how the borough proposes to deliver the objectives of the Mayor’s Transport Strategy (MTS) locally. It is a statutory document, prepared under Section 145 of the Greater London Authority Act 1999 and includes Hounslow’s future transport objectives, a delivery plan and performance targets.

It begins with a description of the current transport situation in Hounslow and builds on this with an analysis of the transport challenges and opportunities faced in the borough. These include issues such as poor air quality, traffic congestion and a lack of orbital transport links. It then identifies where opportunities exist that can help to address these issues, such as the potential to increase walking and cycling in the borough and sets out objectives that will achieve the desired change.

A detailed delivery plan is included for the first three years of implementation (2019/20 to 2021/22) that has been designed to directly address the challenges and objectives, as well as an overview of longer-term initiatives for the period up to 2041.

To ensure that the environmental impact of LIP3 is considered throughout its preparation, a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) was prepared concurrently.  The SEA identifies and assesses the likely significant effects on the environment of implementing the LIP3 and sets out the preferred mitigations.  An Equalities Impact Assessment (EQIA) has also been prepared to ensure the needs of the whole community are being met, and that no one group is unfairly impacted by the proposals.

The documents mentioned above are available for download at the bottom of this page, this consultation is open for all member of the public to respond.
