Mayor scraps London Development Agency

  • Comment

The Mayor of London has unveiled a major restructure of the Greater London Authority (GLA) to devolve more power to the boroughs

Addressing the London Congress today, Boris Johnson presented plans to streamline the GLA. This will include the London region of the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) devolving to the GLA and the functions of the London Development Agency (LDA) also coming under remit of the authority.

Mayor of London Boris Johnson said: “It is time to act, and with a new coalition government strongly supportive of devolving powers we must seize the day for London. This is why I am proposing a reshaped GLA group and a new chapter in the devolution of Whitehall functions to City Hall, including greater powers to the boroughs and enhanced scrutiny functions to the Assembly”.

The move, which comes as a response the government dismantling the Government Office for London, means the LDA will cease to exist as a separate body.

The Olympic Park Legacy Company (OPLC) is also set to be reformed as a Mayoral Development Corporation (MDC), reporting directly to the Mayor.
