The transport committee for London has elected cllr Nick Dolezal of Southwark LBC its new chair - and undertook to rename itself and broaden its functions.

The committee will now be called the Association of London Government transport & environment committee. In addition to providing transport-related services for Londoners, it will now be responsible for representing the London boroughs on a range of environment and planning issues. A representative from Transport for London, the mayor's new agency for operating transport systems in London, will become a member of the new committee in respect of issues such as parking appeals.

Cllr Nick Dolezal said: 'We are looking forward to developing an integrated approach to tackling London's problems in partnership with the mayor and Greater London Assembly. The London Bus Initiative is one example of how much can be achieved through partnership. This new committee provides a forum for the boroughs and the mayor to work together to tackle congestion and reduce environmental problems. With the support of all London's councils more progress can be made in the future.'

Note

- The committee remains responsible for the Freedom Pass for elderly and disabled Londoners; managing the London-wide night time & weekend lorry ban and providing support on traffic law enforcement for Londoners and and councils.
