The Transport Planning Team is responsible for negotiating and delivering innovative facilities and providing excellent public realm.

The City of London is the historic and commercial core of the Capital and a world leading financial centre.  Planning in the City reconciles growth and development with the stewardship of a unique heritage alongside the creation of world class sustainable places.  The City has unrivalled exciting opportunities to deliver cutting edge facilities and delivering the radical Transport Strategy.  It is our aim to be an inclusive and sustainable place for all. If this aligns with you, then we would like to hear from you.
