Our approaches

All planning applications in London should use the Healthy Streets Approach from the Mayor's Transport Strategy (MTS). We use this approach for all our improvements and projects.

The Strategy's goal is to create healthy streets where everyone feels safe walking, cycling and using public transport. We also use a Vision Zero Approach to public safety which aims to eliminate all deaths and serious injuries from London's transport network by 2041.

The Healthy Streets and Vision Zero approaches help new developments in London improve air quality, reduce congestion and make the city a greener, healthier and more attractive place to live, work, play and do business.
