Barnet Council consultations hub: Engage Barnet seeks views on council plans, such as the Local Plan and the Transport Strategy, but may not include local schemes.

The Essential Guide to London Local Government explains the roles of the various bodies involved in delivering services to eight million Londoners.

TfL consultations cover London-wide initiatives, such as Low Emission Zones, TfL managed routes on main roads, Quietways / Cycleways and Mini-Hollands (now Liveable Neighbourhoods / Low Traffic Neighbourhoods). It does not cover ‘local engagement exercises’. The London Streetspace programme on red routes.
