The Projected School Places Demand report by GLA Intelligence as well as reports by London Councils and boroughs' own population projections set out clearly the scale of the challenge. This is why I am determined to play a city-wide strategic leadership role to ensure that school-place planning is co-ordinated across the city between all the partners involved to deliver the school places needed. I am currently seeking the views of London Councils and the Association of Directors of Children's Services on how best to establish a board.
