In March 2012, the Mayor adopted a planning framework for the Vauxhall / Nine Elms / Battersea Opportunity Area.  It is Supplementary Planning Guidance to the London Plan.

The framework has been produced in collaboration with Lambeth and Wandsworth Councils, as well as TfL and English Heritage.

The framework has been altered to respond to matters raised during the public consultation process that took place in the winter of 2009/10.

When London won the bid to host the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the Mayor stated that these Games would be the most “accessible ever.” Ensuring the benefits of the Games reach some of the most deprived parts of London – and leave a genuine legacy – is at the heart of Games.

We have sought to make this a reality through the London 2012 City Operations and planning for the legacy. These papers illustrate this Mayoral commitment to this and also demonstrate our compliance with the General Duty arising from the Equality Act 2010.

Our Transport Committee has written to the Mayor to welcome the good progress made overall on preparing the transport network to cope with the 2012 Games, and highlight a few areas that are still a concern.

The Committee wants the Mayor to set out details of what is being done to improve the performance of the Jubilee line – a key Games route - before the Olympics.  The Jubilee is the only Underground line to see an increase in delays caused by infrastructure failures during the latest published performance period.

Section 346 of the Greater London Authority (GLA) Act 1999 places a duty on the Mayor to monitor the implementation of the Mayor’s London Plan. The Annual Monitoring Report (AMR) is the central document in the monitoring process and assessing the effectiveness of the London Plan.

This eighth AMR published by the Mayor is the first that supports the new London Plan published in July 2011. This introduces six new strategic objectives, and a new suite of 24 Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to monitor delivery. These KPIs are at the core of this new-style AMR (see chapter 3).

Air quality around Heathrow could be significantly improved by better public transport links to help reduce the number of people who travel to and from the airport by car.

Plane Speaking, by the Environment Committee, highlights the fact that passenger numbers at Heathrow could grow by a third to 95 million, and calls for steps to be taken to ensure the growth in passengers does not make air quality around the airport worse.

‘In from the cold’, by our Health and Public Services Committee, makes a series of recommendations that could help improve the situation for the nearly one in five London households who struggle to heat their homes and pay their energy bills.

Unless action is taken to tackle the problem, long-term energy price rises will continue to push more people into fuel poverty: the Greater London Authority’s (GLA) own projections show a worst case scenario that almost a quarter of households will be in fuel poverty by next year.
