Boris outlines changes to the London Plan

Mayor of London Boris Johnson (pictured) has released a report detailing his forthcoming changes to the London Plan.

The document, called Building a Better London, will see a complete reworking of London’s protected views, and create a new tall buildings plan.

Johnson will be looking for more regeneration opportunities in outer London and will drop the 50 per cent housing target, but keep the target of building 50,000 affordable homes over the next three years.

The Greater London Authority’s executive director of policies and partnerships, David Lunts, said: ‘This will set London’s new policies that will contain London’s growth. It is not anti-growth or anti-development.’

The Mayor hopes the changes will feed into a draft London Plan to be released by 2010, with the final document expected by 2012.
