Vision for London wins plaudits

  • Comment

The panel conducting the draft London Plan's Examination in Public has given Ken Livingstone's vision for the capital its overwhelming support.

Its conclusions came in a report, published earlier this week, which followed an extensive examination of public and private attitudes. It concluded that both general and professional opinions are in favour.

The report backs Livingstone's policy of demanding a figure of 50 per cent affordable homes on all new housing developments. It also praised economic growth projections and said the plan presents a coherent set of priorities for tackling inequalities and discrimination.

However, the report does list a series of improvements to the plan's format.

The mayor said he was delighted with the outcome. 'The panel recommends the London Plan should be adopted as quickly as possible, ' said Livingstone.

'This is good news for London.'
