Movement Plan

A bold and people focused vision to transform travel in Southwark


Movement Plan 2018

Southwark Council sets a bold and people focused vision to transform travel in our borough.

In March 2018, the Mayor of London published his Transport Strategy (MTS) and all boroughs were required to respond by producing a local implementation plan. Our response is the Movement Plan, which sets out a holistic approach to transport that puts the wellbeing of people at its heart.

As an Inner London borough, Southwark faces more than its fair share of transport-related problems: too much congestion, poor air quality, poor health outcomes. All too often, our transport networks seem to work against the identities of the communities that they are meant to serve. All too often, they create an environment that people want to get away from rather than enjoy.

Streets and roads are public space; it’s everyone’s space – your experience of moving in the borough matters. We wan to hear from all who live, work and study in Southwark. We will run the Movement Plan consultation from 5 November 2018 to 25 January 2019. Visit Southwark’s online consultation hub to have your say.

Let’s have a conversation about the journeys we make!
