London Planning Statement

The London Planning Statement supplementary planning guidance (SPG) pulls together information about the Mayor’s role in the London planning system.

It is intended to fill the gap left by the former Government Office for London Circular 1/2008, which was revoked by the government

What guidance does the SPG provide?

 The document:

  • sets out some general principles of fundamental importance to the planning system in London
  • explains the Mayor’s role in London’s planning system, both in preparing strategic housing policy through The London Plan and in taking planning decisions on strategic developments
  • highlights the issues the Mayor considers to be particular priorities for the London planning system
  • sets out the Mayor’s intended programme of planning-related work
