Preparing for the next mayorApril 7, 2016
This week Bloomberg hosted an event to support our work in preparing for the next mayor.
The new mayor will take office on 6th May , at an extraordinary time for London – the population is larger than it ever has been with 8.7 million residents, and projected to grow to 10 million by the mid 2030s. Some reports even suggest we will reach megacity status sooner than that.
But there are challenges to be met, particularly around housing and transport.
London First briefed members on the upcoming Mayoral elections and thoughts on the key priorities for the next administration.
Realising future growth will require leadership and a willingness to mobilise the powers and resources of City Hall around a core set of jobs and growth priorities.
