Answer for Supplementary Planning Guidance

Answered By: 
The Mayor

As far as guidance relating to the current London Plan is concerned, I anticipate publishing the new London View Management Framework next spring (subject to ministerial approval of the necessary directions). I have also recently published for consultation draft supplementary guidance on housing to support the existing London Plan. Subject to the outcome of the examination in public next month, I intend publishing the guidance to support the proposed alterations to the Plan to enable contributions to be raised through the planning system towards the cost of Crossrail. I do not currently intend issuing any further guidance supporting the existing Plan.

Officers are considering which areas it might be worthwhile to bring forward draft guidance to support the draft replacement London Plan to help inform its public examination next summer. These are likely to include housing, town centres (including retail and leisure), the Central Activities Zone, accessibility and inclusive design, sustainable design and construction and energy. Decisions about final publication of these would have to be taken in the light of the outcome of the examination in public.
