A city for all Londoners
On 24th October 2016, London Mayor Sadiq Khan published for consultation a new development strategy for the capital ‘A City for All Londoners’, outlining challenges and opportunities across priority policy areas, and highlighting changes City Hall wants to deliver over the next four years.
It considers the pressure of a fast-growing population, the increasing diversity of Londoners, rising inequality, the uncertainty caused by the EU referendum result and the effects of climate change, and addresses:
- Land use and growth.
- Economic development.
- The environment.
- Policing and crime.
- Health inequalities.
Khan said, “Today I am asking all Londoners to tell us how they want us to respond to the big trends that are shaping London’s long-term future…. Our economy is one of the strongest in the world, but the uncertainty following the EU referendum result has exacerbated existing threats to London’s competitiveness. And for too many Londoners, the prosperity and wealth on their doorsteps is more remote and more inaccessible than ever before – especially an affordable and decent home. I want to lead a city that responds positively to growth, that celebrates its diversity and where people from all walks of life are safe, healthy and live well together.”
“Over the coming years I will publish detailed strategies for consultation across a wide range of policy areas. This document, meanwhile, sets the tone for those strategies and the direction of travel for my Mayoralty.”
The contents of the report are:
- Mayor ’s foreword.
- Executive summary.
- Part 1: Accommodating growth.
- Part 2: Housing.
- Part 3: Economy.
- Part 4: Environment, transport and public space.
- Part 5: A city for all Londoners.
- Annex: Statutory strategies and GLA duties.
The consultation ended on 11 December 2016.
