I will challenge Boris on tall buildings

Boris Johnson famously said that he doesn’t want London to turn into Dubai-on-Thames. But his planning policies and planning decisions seem be allowing just that.

At this morning’s Mayor’s Question Time, I will challenge the Mayor on the rash of tall buildings going up across the capital. The Planning Committee heard yesterday that there is no need to build up in order to achieve all but the highest density levels outlined in the London Plan. So if it’s not about housing, what is it about?Moorhouse_2

Tune in to watch me question the Mayor on this. You can watch the webcast live from 10am here.
