Mayor Sadiq Khan’s draft London Plan—the Mayor’s most important policy instrument—has now been through its formal Examination in Public (EiP). This is an extended process that allows public discussion of questions such as the feasibility of the Plan’s housing targets; how these relate to the Mayor’s affordability priorities; density and built form; and the relationship between development inside and outside London. The core issues around housing and land use are highly political, and the fundamentals remain disputed. LSE researchers, particularly the LSE London research group, have worked extensively on these issues over the last few years, and we have tried to ensure that this body of LSE research was taken into account during the EiP. LSE London participated in the process in several ways. We took part in ten public sessions and wrote blog posts about the tenor of the discussion, the most important areas of dispute and the solutions put forward. We commented on the draft Plan and the related housing strategy at consultation stage last year and submitted written evidence on several fundamental issues that the Plan addresses. We held five roundtables for participants and knowledgeable specialists, publishing summaries of the discussions and conclusions on the web, and are hosting a final event on what the EiP has achieved and more importantly ‘where next’. Finally, we have compiled this short booklet summarising 26 reports of LSE research whose findings are most relevant to the topics raised in the Inquiry into the London Plan.
