AS WE GROW
London locals demand a seat at the table
when the future of their communities is being decided
All across London our neighbourhoods are changed and planned above our heads: local residents and businesses don’t have a seat at the table where their futures are being decided.
Our local identity, green spaces and heritage are being removed. Housing is now unaffordable for most Londoners, while new apartments are stacked high and left vacant. Council estate demolition is displacing people and breaking up communities. Planning rules are ignored. And still the challenges and problems London faces are not being solved.
We’ve had enough of top-down planning. We believe it’s time to listen to the many local campaigns and community groups across London: their visions for the future need to be respected and integrated into planning, transport and other developmental decisions.
#ListentoLocals wants to connect up London’s campaigns and communities who want a say in London’s future.
We will campaign for active local representation in:
GLA policy and planning decisions
Local Authority planning decisions
Transport planning decisions
Infrastructure task force recommendations
Our initial objective is to get localism and placemaking on the agenda for the forthcoming mayoral and GLA elections.
