What should Mayor for London Boris Johnson do to promote 20 `forgotten’ London Boroughs?
While Ken Livingstone was known as the `Zone 1’ Mayor Boris wants to revive Barking in the east, Barnet in the north, Ealing to the west and Croydon to the south.
With 4.8m people living in outer London – 63% of London’s population – and almost five times the population of Birmingham, the 20 boroughs represent one of THE property opportunities for the decade ahead.
The Mayor has set up an Outer London Commission to assess their future, and Property Week wants its readers to play a full part in the debate.
Our Outer London Think Tank will gather and publish your views, and send them to the Commission, which is headed by former British Property Federation chief executive Will McKee.
Where should the Commission focus its attention?
What type of jobs should it aim to create?
What should be done to improve transport in and beyond the 20 boroughs?
What new sectors and industries could prosper in outer London?
What type of homes are right for outer London?
What are the disadvantages of outer London?
