LIPS guidance

Each London borough is required to develop a LIP under the GLA Act (1999). The LIP sets out how the borough will deliver the Mayor's Transport Strategy at local level.

The latest LIP delivery plan is on the LIPs page in Publications & reports.

LIP Funding

We provide financial support to boroughs for schemes to improve their transport networks.

Funding is allocated under five main programmes:

  • Principal road maintenance
  • Bridge strengthening
  • Corridors, neighbourhoods and supporting measures
  • Traffic signal modernisation for sites on borough roads
  • Major Schemes

Funding for Principal road maintenance and bridge strengthening is awarded to roads and bridges most in need of repair, and is established through condition surveys.

Corridors, neighbourhoods and supporting measures funding is allocated using a formula that was agreed with London Councils and the London Technical Advisory Group (LoTAG) in 2010.

Funding under the Major Schemes programme is awarded through a competitive bidding process based on need, design and implementation.

Read more about Major Schemes.

LIP delivery plans

Each year, London boroughs must submit a LIP annual spending submission with specific details of individual schemes they wish to take forward. At the end of the financial year, each borough must submit a report on how they have delivered a range of priorities such as cycle parking, 20 mph zones and pedestrian crossings.

See the final LIPS allocations.

To see what each borough put in their LIP funding letter, see Information by borough.

LIPs guidance

The LIP formula funding allocations for 'Corridors, Neighbourhoods and Supporting Measures' are calculated for each borough.

Second LIPs

The then-Mayor produced guidance in 2010 that set out requirements and support for London boroughs in producing their second LIPs.

To go along with this, a supplementary note on setting targets for second LIPs was also produced to help boroughs identify and agree LIP targets. Since then, all the boroughs have adopted their second LIP.

The Guidance was published alongside the revised Mayor's Transport Strategy.

Boroughs Portal

The Boroughs Portal is a web-based system that we, along with boroughs and partnerships, use to manage LIP and non-LIP funding that we provide.

The Portal is used to apply for funds, allocate funds, report on scheme progress, and the subsequent claiming of funds from TfL.
