The Mayor, Sadiq Khan, has published a new vision for London: A City for All Londoners.  This document outlines the capital’s top challenges and opportunities across his priority policy areas, as well as the changes that City Hall wants to deliver over the next four years.

The Mayor’s role is to steer London in the right direction as the city changes. A City for All Londoners outlines how he plans to respond positively to pressures on growth, celebrate diversity and unite through our unique culture.  It aims to ensure people from all walks of life are healthy and live well alongside each other. We want to build a city that's open to the world for business and where Londoners experience a high standard of living, fitting for the world’s greatest city.

This document sets out a direction for London, which the Mayor will later expand upon in detailed strategies, including:

  • land use and growth (the London Plan)
  • transport
  • housing
  • economic development
  • the environment
  • policing and
  • crime
  • culture
  • health inequalities 

We welcome the document and its acknowledgement of the importance of walking for transport, health and the environment in in London, and will be responding to the consultation. In particular, we are pleased by the  healthy streets and the “feet first approach” and references to protection of the greenbelt, good design in public spaces, the prioritisation of access to green space in planning, 20mph zones and neighbourhoods that are attractive and accessible.

We will also be encouraging our thousands of members and volunteers in London to respond as individuals when the consultation opens to individuals.
