Provisions for Connectivity are included within the London Plan and the Further Alternations to the London Plan (see Policy 4.11 Encouraging a Connected Economy).

London boroughs' local plans need to be in general conformity with the London Plan, and its policies guide decisions on planning applications by councils and the Mayor.
