Planning roundup

According to a new poll of Londoners, business leaders and councillors in the capital, London’s infrastructure lags far behind expectations for a world city. According to new thought leadership panel London Tomorrow, this could be affecting the capital’s international competitiveness. The new research by ComRes for London Chamber of Commerce and Industry lists housing, transport and digital connectivity as the top three areas thought to be furthest behind expectations across all three audiences, with businesses also particularly negative about airport capacity. The research from London Tomorrow, a thought leadership panel organised by London Chamber of Commerce and Industry in association with EY London and supported by London City Airport, looked at the infrastructure investment needed in the capital and how this could be funded and delivered.
