Priorities for London


At a meeting of the Greenwich and Woolwich Labour Party, Len Duvall AM hosted a debate on priorities and policies for Labour's next candidate to be Mayor of London.

The debate was followed by lively discussions among those in attendance, during which a range of ideas:

  • Re-zoning Woolwich Arsenal station from Zone 4 to Zone 3/4.
  • Extending the Ultra Low Emission Zone to include the Royal Borough of Greenwich.
  • Improving the reliability of bus services and increasing the number of cross-river routes in the east of the city
  • More homes that are truly affordable to rent or buy.
  • Make paying the London Living Wage a requirement for all contracts awarded by the Mayor.
  • Promote 'living streets' to encourage walking.
  • Capping letting agent fees.
  • Restoring neighbourhood policing to 2009 levels.
  • Establish a London-wide health body to ensure joined-up health policy.

These ideas and more will be forwarded to all contenders who have declared their wish to stand for Labour at the mayoral election in 2016.
