Under our strategy, a key part of our work is to champion sustainable transport to, from and around the Forest in order to reduce pollution and protect the Forest’s biodiversity and enjoyment by the public. This page provides you with the update on our policy and delivery work to encourage sustainable transport with partners and stakeholders including City of London Corporation, Transport for London, local boroughs and others.
