Transport policy

Southwark Council has a number of strategic documents to support and promote more sustainable forms of travel in the borough. Through infrastructure and behaviour change schemes, we have increased the levels of walking and cycling in the borough with a decrease in the number of privately owned vehicles.

We have embedded cycling policies in all our strategic documents. Robust evidence identifies the missing links, ensuring that we plan for a future of increased cycling levels cycling in Southwark. These policies and guidance will be used to determine and influence planning applications. The creation of new neighbourhoods offers a unique opportunity to unlock the walking and cycling potential of areas as the places we live, work, study, shop and play in come closer together. We can support walking and cycling from the outset with the advantage of built-in infrastructure, such as high levels of cycle parking or cycle hire docking stations, at homes, stations and destinations and connected, attractive, inclusive, safe and stress free routes that are designed for low vehicle speeds. To achieve our vision, we have included stronger walking and cycling policies throughout the New Southwark Plan, neighbourhood plans, area action plans and opportunity areas. Further information on policies can be viewed here.
