Havering’s Local Implementation Plan (LIP3) for Consultation
After the publication of a Mayor’s Transport Strategy (MTS), boroughs have to start preparing a strategy setting out how they will deliver the MTS at a local level. This is known as a Local Implementation Plan. A Local Implementation Plan (LIP) is a statutory document prepared under Section 145 of the GLA Act. It represents a borough’s own transport strategy and is reviewed on an annual basis.
This is the third LIP prepared by Havering and it aligns with the MTS published in March 2018 for the period up to 2041. The draft LIP explains how the borough will implement the transport elements of the draft London Plan, the Mayor’s Transport Strategy and other relevant Mayoral strategies. The draft LIP also takes into account Havering’s own plans and strategies, particularly the Havering Local Plan submitted in March 2018, and sets out the long term vision for transport in Havering up to 2041.
The Council is undertaking a consultation exercise to seek the views of the public, local businesses and other interested parties. Responses will be taken into account when drafting the final LIP3 document to be submitted to TfL in early 2019.
Strategic Environmental Assessment
The strategic environmental assessment (SEA) is a systematic decision support process, aiming to ensure that environmental and possibly other sustainability aspects are considered effectively in policy, plan and program making. This assessment is a statutory requirement when submitting a local implementation plan to outline what environmental impacts the schemes and policies in LIP3 may have.
