Local Implementation Plan objection - update on Tuesday

To everyone who is following the progress of the City of London Local Implementation Plan and what it means for cyclists, a quick update on what's happening next.

UPDATE: The latest development is on this page here where you can find out how to get involved.

The full background about what we're up to, why we think it's important and how you can help is on this page here

So far we've only seen the draft Plan. The City has part-published the public version of the Plan on its website this morning. But it hasn't loaded a couple of crucial parts of the Plan (for example, the budget details) so we're just waiting for those final bits to be added.

Once the City has loaded the rest of the Plan into its public website, we'll be posting the following here:

a) an email you can send to your friends to encourage them to get involved;
b) a document with all the background you might want to read if you're really interested in this stuff and
c) a template email to send to the City of London and a list of people to send it to
d) a link to all the source documents

I expect we'll have that ready for you either tonight or tomorrow morning. As I've stated before, these documents will be the response of a group of us that have been swapping notes and really getting our heads around the Plan. If you want to respond differently in any way, then feel absolutely free to do so. We're just trying to give people a headstart so that you can respond quickly without having to spend hours reading the full background of the Plan.

Good luck!


  1. Great stuff, and well done for being so on top of this. I've encouraged all my blog readers today to head your way to sort out the City with this post:

    Looking forward to receiving all the details in response to the LIPS and penning me letter soon!

  2. Good job! I have asked whoever I could at my place hope it makes an impact.

  3. Where is the draft plan? Is that the one from May 2010 at the bottom of this page

  4. It's not uploaded on their website yet. It should have been posted by them yesterday. You can read the December draft version though. I linked to that draft in this article

    I spoke to the guy responsible for the LIP last night. He says the final draft is ready but he's waiting for the IT department to load the website.

    Very frustrating. I'm itching to get started!

  6. Hi, sorry to be a pain. I've had a look at that link and can't find the December report link you mention. Each link in the blog post takes you to another blog post. Could you please post the direct link to the December report here? Thanks!

  7. I was going to cross post your 'template email' to Lambeth Cyclists today but it seems to have disappeared - it was in my RSS reader this morning but no longer appears on your blog.

  8. Simon, The template's coming back tomorrow! Teh City of London site is missing a couple of crucial bits (namely the money bit!) and so we're just waiting until it's all loaded properly on their website (they've told us it should be any minute but that was hours ago).

    As soon as it's up there, the template will reappear. And please please forward it on....

  9. Hey allthatjazz. I put the wrong link for the December report. It's here, sorry!
