EiP Library

The draft new London Plan EiP Library includes the evidence base that supports the draft new London Plan and all representations submitted in response to the consultation. Panel notes and any other documentation considered necessary or desirable by the Panel of inspectors will be added in due course.

Consultation Responses on the draft new London Plan

On 13 August 2018 the Mayor published a version of the draft Plan that includes his minor suggested changes. These suggested changes have been prepared following a review of consultation responses, and consist of clarifications, corrections and factual updates to the draft Plan that will help inform the EiP. Therefore comments on them are not being invited.
