RTPI London Mayoral Election Membership Survey

PLANNERS: Election 2016: What should London’s next mayor prioritise? VOTE NOW!

Ballot-box-genericLondon’s economy is bigger than many countries – similar in size to Sweden.

Meanwhile, London’s population of 8.6m has recently exceeded its all-time previous  record, it is important to remember that the city’s wealth and dynamism owes much to its hinterland. The fate of London and the greater South-East are inextricably linked. Planning for the capital cannot take place in isolation from the home counties, and vice-versa.

In 2016, Londoners will go to the polls to elect a new mayor. This will likely be followed by a new London Plan and Mayor’s Transport Strategy, setting out a vision for the capital for the next four years. What should the planning priorities be? How best should we address press challenges such as housing, transport, climate change and quality of life? Given that London has a bigger economy than many Countries, should it have greater autonomy through fiscal devolution? Should London’s boundaries be extended to reflect commuting patterns and its functional economic area?

In the run-up to the mayoral election, RTPI London would like to hear from you. As a planner, what do you think the new mayor should prioritise? Please fill in this short survey to make your voice heard.

This survey is open to all RTPI members across the London, South East and East of England regions. Click here for the Survey.
