Boris Johnson launched a consultation in July, following the publication of Planning for a Better London, which set out his intentions to improve the quality of life for Londoners through the capital’s planning system and revising the London Plan.
The consultation supported a full review of the London Plan, rather than making successive alterations to the existing one.
an annual London Planning Convention
a shorter, more concise, plan and a reduction in the amount of supplementary planning guidance produced
the scrapping of the 50% affordable housing target in the current plan
new quality standards in house building
more focus on the development of a diverse economy to foster the growth of all types and sizes of enterprises
The Mayor said: “In the current economic climate it is essential that we get the London Plan right now so that it is ready to help London grow and strengthen its status as a world-beating city when the economic upturn arrives.
"The new policies that will form the capital’s planning framework for the next decade and beyond must not only make London an even better place to live and work in but must support all the sectors that contribute to the capital’s ever evolving economy."
