Local authorities are subject to legal duties under the Equality Act 2010 including a duty to have ‘due regard’ to the impacts of their activities on protected equality groups. In practice, this means public authorities must consider the need to eliminate discrimination, advance equality of opportunity and foster good relations as they go about their business.

Please see Mayor's Question 2019/14293 for further information on the assessment of equalities impacts for CS1 and Mayor's Question 2019/14292 for further information on Transport for London’s approach more generally.
