East of England responds to the Draft New London Plan Consultation

7th March 2018

The Mayor of London’s new London Plan was launched on 1 December 2017 and was open for consultation until 2 March 2018.

The new London Plan is published at a time of unprecedented pressure on land, infrastructure and the environment across the Wider South East (WSE).  At the launch of the London Plan on 1 December, Deputy Mayor Jules Pipe stressed that this new London Plan is designed to be more engaging and accessible, with a focus on tangible policies and greater clarity on how the plan will be implemented.

The East of England LGA has played a central role in supporting member councils to engage with the Greater London Authority in the past two years, and in the run up to the publication of the London Plan was able to influence the London Plan policies relating to WSE Engagement. A jointly organised WSE Summit on 26 January 2018 at the GLA in London also presented an opportunity for council leaders to engage with representatives from the GLA on the London Plan and feedback thoughts and comments.

The East of England LGA has worked with member councils to prepare an East of England response to London Plan and the response that was submitted can be found below:
