Environmental assessment of Kingston's local implementation plan

We are undertaking a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) of the latest Local Implementation Plan (LIP3). This considers the impacts of the LIP3 on the environment.

This LIP3 outlines a commitment to improving transport options for the community and to reducing the negative impacts of travel on our borough. It sets out the council's proposals to improve Kingston’s transport, environment and streets, and how this will contribute towards the delivery of the Mayor of London's new Transport Strategy and Healthy Streets agenda. It sets out long term goals and transport objectives for the borough for the next 20 years from 2019/2020.

Stage 1 - To undertake this assessment, a consultation on the scope and level of detail that is likely to be required to assess the programme had to be carried out with relevant consultation bodies in March 2019. These bodies were chosen because of their specific environmental responsibilities and the fact that they are likely to be concerned by the environmental effects of the plan being implemented.

In this case, statutory bodies including English Heritage/Historic England, the Environment Agency and Natural England. The responses from these organisations have now been included in the SEA.

Stage 2 - Now we want to hear from you!

We'd like to hear your views on the SEA. Please fill in our survey to have your say by Friday 28 June 2019.

Please note: The SEA needs to be read in conjunction with the draft LIP3, as it considers the impacts of the LIP3 on the environment. You can view both documents below:
