Epping Forest Transport Strategy 2008 - 2016
The City of London as Conservators of Epping Forest, Essex County Council and the London Boroughs of Redbridge and Waltham Forest are working in partnership to improve the transport network in and around Epping Forest. This will aim to ensure that the impact on the Forest's natural aspect is minimised and that decision-making centres on protecting the Forest and improving access for people to enjoy it, now and in the future.
We need others to share our excitement and get everyone who drives through or visits the Forest to consider changes to the way they travel and how they view the Forests roads.
During 2008 and 2009 the City of London and Essex County Council held a series of public consultations to provide information on the Epping Forest Transport Strategy.
On Thursday 11 February 2010 we will be hosting a display of the updated Transport Strategy proposals which take into consideration the public consultation in 2008/9. They will include information on route management measures and the location of cattle grids. This event was originally planned for the 11 February but has been changed due to the weather conditions. It will be open to all members of the public and officers from the City of London, Essex County Council and the London Borough of Redbridge will be available to answer any questions you have about the strategy.
