Mayor Johnson says he will promote development of commercial centres in outer London in his new London Plan.
He wants to set up an outer London Commission to investigate changes to the planning system which will promote employment growth in the suburbs. Ian Clement, Johnson’s Deputy who is believed to be taking on his planning powers, announced these plans at Estate Gazette’s London Summit last week.
Within the next few weeks, Sir Simon Milton will produce the new Mayor’s ‘Direction of Travel’ document showing his intentions on planning. It is understood that ‘tall buildings’ will be confined to clusters however, and Croydon (pictured) is the only one of these clusters sited in ‘outer London’. So, no towers for West London then?
