From Monday April 1 2019, TfL started to expect all new Referable planning applications, and (on request) some non-Referable ones, to follow new Healthy Streets and Vision Zero guidance. TfL’s Urban Planning & Construction website has also been fully updated to support this change. Using the new tools and techniques launched there is the best way to ensure that any planning application supports the Mayor’s Transport Strategy (MTS) and complies with all transport-related policies in the draft new London Plan.
Anyone working on transport for property development in London should check it thoroughly, especially the new TfL ‘Healthy Streets TA format’ and step by step instructions for an Active Travel Zone (ATZ) assessment. TfL is also recommending that ATZ assessments replace PERS, CERS and CLoS assessments. Gavin McLaughlin researched, created, introduced and now provides training on TfL’s latest recommendations and requirements.
Gavin McLaughlin is TfL’s lead town planner for Camden, Hackney, Islington and the City of London. He holds a MSc (distinction) in Creative Cities from King’s College London, a BSc in Geography from the University of Bristol, and a distance learning Urban & Rural Planning MA (distinction) completed in his spare time. He has addressed international academic conferences on urban regeneration issues and collaborated successfully with a range of public and private sector stakeholders in previous research and practitioner roles. He is also the lead singer of successful disco indie band Zkeletonz, who’ve played over 100 gigs and festivals across the UK, and been featured by Apple Music Asia, Channel 4 Sunday Brunch, Amazing Radio, Radio X and BBC Introducing.
