2050 London Infrastructure PlanAugust 8, 2014
Last week, the Mayor of London published his trillion pound London Infrastructure Plan 2050, detailing a major programme of infrastructure investment that will allow the capital to continue to operate efficiently and successfully during a time of unprecedented population growth.
London First welcomed the Plan as a significant step forward in London’s capability to plan effectively for its future growth. We called for the Mayor to play a greater strategic role in the planning and delivery of London’s infrastructure in the final report of our 2011 Infrastructure Commission, so we are very pleased to see the consultation reference our Commission as one of the chief inspirations for the Plan.
We’ve analysed the Plan’s approach to key issues including its costs and how to pay for it, managing supply and demand, and how it could be most effectively delivered in a short briefing.
The Mayor is now consulting on the Infrastructure Plans over a period of 3 months to 31 October 2014, and is expected to publish a final report in early 2015. We will be arranging further opportunities for our members to discuss the 2050 Plan over the autumn, to help inform our – and your- response to the GLA’s consultation ahead of their October deadline. Further details will follow from our events team very shortly.
