Work to develop this year's Business Plan is underway.  It will be taken to TfL's Board for approval later in the year.  A draft will be published a week in advance of that meeting and the finalised version published following that meeting.

TfL's annual Business Plan sets out how TfL is delivering my Transport Strategy (MTS) which is a statutory requirement. The MTS is underpinned by goals which closely align with improving health such as improving facilities for walking and cycling and the introduction of an Ultra Low Emission Zone in central London. TfL is particularly mindful of its commitments to support improvements to Londoners' health having recently published a Health Action Plan and will be considering and reinforcing this as part of finalising the Business Plan.
