Today Centre for London, the capital’s dedicated think tank, has launched Your Future London, an online platform giving Londoners the chance to have their say in the city’s future.
The city-wide consultation is part of the Centre’s once-in-a-generation strategic review of the city, London Futures, which aims to build a shared vision for London. This shared vision will be published at the start of the next London mayoral term.
If you could decide, what would you want in London’s future? Through Your Future London, Londoners are asked to make choices between a range of potential policy ideas, from lower taxes to safer streets, cleaner air to free public transport. Londoners also have the chance to learn about the city’s current challenges and explore possible scenarios for London’s future.
Centre for London will be launching Your Future London alongside traditional consultation options, , which will give both Londoners and London-based organisations the opportunity to share more in-depth views about the direction they want the city to take. The Centre will examine all of the responses to understand what people care about most and what the city’s priorities should be, to create the shared vision.
Rob Whitehead, Director of Strategic Projects at Centre for London, said:
“There are many directions London could take in the future. Your Future London is an extraordinary opportunity for Londoners from all walks of life – from business owners and young professionals to retired residents and students – to take part in creating a shared vision for their city.
“The options available to us are endless. We could ban all petrol cars, invest more in tech innovation, or create a fairer capital with a London minimum wage and free public transport.
“But we need to hear from as many Londoners as possible to understand what Londoners want city leaders to prioritise and improve the city we all love over the coming decades.”
