Our primary objective is to see a longer-term commitment to sustained investment in transport infrastructure, but we have also called for further moves towards giving London’s elected Mayor greater control over some of the taxes paid by Londoners and, similarly, greater devolution of funding for house building, to serve London’s rapidly growing population.

In support of our submission, London First also this week published ‘Building London, Building Britain‘, a report produced by PwC that analyses the impact of development activity within central London on the wider UK.
