This is the first time that Londoners can’t vote for an incumbent Mayor. No more Boris and no more Ken.
The election comes at a pivotal time for the capital; London is going to grow to 10 million in the next 15 years. Questions over affordable housing, air quality, how to fund transport infrastructure and possibility of leaving the European Union.
A new Mayor will have the opportunity to shape how London plans for this growth. As you would expect there are a lot of articles, research papers, reports and manifestos have been published offering ideas. Urbanistas Book Club invite you to debate these ideas and the future of London – asking how would you maintain London’s position in this period substantial growth ?
