Richard Rogers steps down as Boris Johnson's design advisor

  • Comment

Richard Rogers has announced he is to walk away from his roles as deputy chair of the Mayor of London‘s design advisory panel and Great Spaces panel

Labour Peer Rogers was given the less influential design panel position following the arrival of Conservative Mayor Boris Johnson in May last year. He had previously been former Mayor Ken Livingstone’s main advisor on urban issues, having taken on the role in summer 2000.

Rogers will officially step down from both positions on 14 October.

Johnson said: ‘I want to thank Richard for the huge contribution he has made to the establishment of both these panels, which are crucial to my aim of improving the quality of life for Londoners.

‘For many years now Richard has played an important role in making London a better place to live, work and visit and I know he will continue to contribute his invaluable experience to that debate.’

Rogers was unavailable for comment.
