Brent consults on LIP

Brent Council is consulting on its draft Local Implementation Transport Plan, which sets out how the future of transport will be up delivered from 2019 to 2041.

It details the council’s plans to create healthy streets by encouraging active and safer travel, mostly for pedestrians and cyclists, which will help to reduce congestion, improve public health and local air quality.

Proposals include:

  • improving conditions for walking and cycling such as through identified road safety schemes and the proposed Liveable Neighbourhoods Schemes,
  • encouraging the uptake of ultra-low emission vehicles by increasing the amount of electric charging facilities and
  • progressing plans for low emission neighbourhoods.

The council intends to work in partnership to support improved orbital transport links – suh as the West London Orbital – across the borough and between outer London centres which will broaden employment opportunities and allow journeys currently made by car to be made by sustainable forms of transport.

Cllr Shama Tatler, Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Highways and Planning, said: “We would like feedback on this consultation as it will shape transport in Brent for the next twenty-two years. The draft plan is an ambitious one which we can achieve with the help of our partners and external funding and right now we want to hear and understand your views so we can deliver what you want for the borough.”
