Further to the recommendations made by the Planning Inspector who assessed your Further Alterations to the London Plan - which questioned the ability of the Plan's strategies to successfully accommodate London future population growth - can you provide an update on when you intend to publish the results of your review into the effectiveness of the current London Plan?

Noting that the Inspector called for a review of the London Plan - not a review of the implementation of the London Plan as you put it - this will be for my successor to carry forward as his or her new London Plan, and it will for them to publish a consultation draft of it in their first term.  However, as you know I was happy to accept the Inspector's recommendation that work on the review should commence this year, and as part of their work around mayoral transition, my officers have already begun scoping work. Some of this work is informing my Outer London Commission's deliberations this summer.
