Planning

PPS 1: Introduction

Planning Policy Statements (PPS) set out the Government's national policies on different aspects of land use planning in England. PPS1 sets out the overarching planning policies on the delivery of sustainable development through the planning system. These policies complement, but do not replace or override, other national planning policies and should be read in conjunction with other relevant statements of national planning policy. This PPS replaces Planning Policy Guidance (PPG) Note 1, General Policies and Principles, published in February 19971.

The policies set out in this PPS will need to be taken into account by regional planning bodies in the preparation of regional spatial strategies, by the Mayor of London in relation to the spatial development strategy in London and by local planning authorities in the preparation of local development documents. They may also be material to decisions on individual planning applications.

(1)  Some policy guidance from PPG1 was updated and included in Annex B of the consultation draft of PPS1 published in February 2004. This material is being re-published alongside this PPS.

London Plan 5

This plan maintains a strong emphasis on facilitating the continued attractiveness of London to world business with a phased supply of appropriate floor space for international business activities, and the specialist services that supply them, especially in the Central Activities Zone where many will need and wish to locate.

London Plan 4

Globalisation and other changes in the global economy are working together to change the economic map of the world. In particular, China is projected to become the second biggest economy globally by 2020, and to overtake the United States to become the largest economy by 2050. India is projected to grow to become the third largest economy by 2050; over the same timescale Russia and Brazil are likely to have economies about the same size as that of Japan. As these countries grow and become more prosperous, they will increase in importance as markets for goods and services from the UK and other more developed countries. Chinese and Indian consumers will buy more insurance as their incomes increase, and their enterprises will need the professional, legal, accountancy and advertising services in which London has a leading role. These are all areas, however where there is intense and increasing global competition. London will have to ensure it remains a competitive economic environment, with the investment it needs in its infrastructure, people and enterprises. The marketing and promotion of what London has to offer will also be of increasing importance.

London Plan 3

London is a world city and acts as one of a very small number of command and control centres in the increasingly interactive network of transactions across the world economy2. World cities have very distinctive strategic needs. Although separated by thousands of miles, they are intimately linked as a virtual global entity by the transactions of markets and communications systems. To reflect these links, the Mayor has begun to develop collaborative relationships with other major world cities.

London Plan 2

London’s life and economy will continue to be strongly shaped by trans-national forces, particularly economic globalisation, improved international communications and migration. Many forces that have a worldwide impact will be especially significant for London. These include, for example, global warming and international threats to security.

London Plan

Policy 1.1 London in its global, European and UK context
The Mayor, LDA and TfL will, and all other strategic agencies should, ensure that the development of London as a global business centre supports the spatial and economic development of Europe and the UK and that London’s growth supports the future growth of the ‘core cities’1.
The Mayor will continue to seek the appropriate level of governmental and other resources to support London’s development as the main world city and major gateway to Europe and the UK.
