Answered By: 
The Mayor

I help facilitate neighbourhood planning through London Plan policy and guidance. This includes policies such as those in FALP Policy 7.1 Lifetime Neighbourhoods, Policy 7.3 Local Character, 7.5 Public Realm, Policy 3.16 Protection and Enhancement of Social Infrastructure. It also includes the Character and Context SPG June 2014, Accessible London SPG Oct 2014, Town Centres SPG July 2014 and the draft Social Infrastructure SPG May 2014.
