What impact will climate change have on London’s economy? How will an increased risk of flooding, heatwaves and extreme weather events affect domestic and foreign markets?
The London Assembly’s Housing Committee heard today how financial constraints are leading boroughs and developers towards deciding to demolish and rebuild social housing estates rather than refurbishing existing properties.
From 10.30am Wednesday 18 June
The full Assembly will discuss the work of the Airports Commission and put questions to:
How are the decisions made to refurbish or demolish social housing estates in need of renewal? And how does the Mayor’s funding affect the decisions?
Are the Metropolitan Police’s efforts to achieve a more diverse workforce reaching their goal? Will London’s police service reach the Mayor’s aim of having a workforce that ‘reflects the city it serves’. 
How can Taxi and Private Hire services better meet the needs of London passengers and adapt to new technologies?
Will London cope with severe weather events in the future? Are the Mayor’s strategies in line with climate projections?
