Record number of local councils oppose London City expansion proposals


The London City consultation closed yesterday. A record number of local authorities have objected to the expansion proposals in London City’s Master Plan. Tower Hamlets, Newham, Hackney, Waltham Forest, Redbridge, Havering and Lewisham have objected.  Never before has London City faced this level of opposition. The London Assembly has also objected.  We have not yet seen the responses from the Mayor of London or from Bexley, Greenwich or Barking and Dagenham.  We will put them up when we know them.

A final Master Plan is expected late 2019/early 2020, with a planning application on the proposals it wants to take forward submitted in Spring 2020.
