The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, has published a new London Plan showing his "blueprint for boosting the capital’s status as the best place in the world to live or do business and improving the quality of life for all Londoners".
The new Plan focuses on key areas for London’s development over the next two decades against a background of a growing city: economic development, tackling climate change and other environmental issues, housing and transport.
It aims particularly to focus on ensuring there are enough homes and jobs and to make sure the infrastructure London needs is planned for and delivered effectively.
The Plan also reflects the recommendations of the Outer London Commission to support growth in London’s outer boroughs which received a lift recently with the announcement by the Mayor of a £50m fund to boost regeneration and rejuvenation of town centres in outer London.
The Mayor of London Boris Johnson said: "It is absolutely vital to the UK economy that we maintain and grow London’s status as the world’s leading business centre and ensure it is one of the best cities to live and work in. These objectives are fundamentally linked and we will not achieve one without the other. My new London Plan gives us a clear, concise vision of how we can make this happen.
