The borough's Transport Local Implementation Plan (LIP) is a crucial plan to check. It's about what transport stuff is planned over the next few years in some kind of accordance with the Mayor of London's Transport Strategy. While I'm certain that Lambeth's will be more cycling friendly than, say, Westminster's or Barnet's, that most certainly doesn't mean to say we needn't bother to get involved in the consultation process - and I hope that this revised timetable still allows good time to digest and comment.

Dear Charlie,

Thank you for your email. We are now planning on formally consulting on
our LIP in January 2011.

We had initially planned to consult with the public in October and
December this year. However TfL have notified us that they don't have
capacity to review our LIP until 20th December. Therefore we made the
decision to put our formal consultation back until the New Year. As we
decided it would be more time efficient to analyse comments from both
TfL and the public at the same time.

Your email is very timely however, as it reminds me that I must update
the information that we have on our internet stating that we will be
consulting in Oct/Nov

The LIP will be made readily available on the internet.

Many thanks
