Zac’s Action Plan for Greater London

Zac’s Action Plan for Greater London

Zac Goldsmith has an Action Plan for Greater London. Over the next four years, if elected as Mayor, will work with the Government to:

Start fixing London’s housing crisis by:

  • Doubling home building to 50,000 a year by 2020 and ensuring development is in keeping with the local area
  • Giving Londoners the first chance to buy new homes built in London
  • Ensuring a significant proportion of all new homes are only for rent and not for sale

Improve the capacity and reliability of London’s transport system by:

  • Ensuring the Night Tube goes ahead, starting Crossrail 2, and growing the rail network
  • Bringing suburban rail services under the Mayor’s control to increase and improve the service
  • Protecting the Freedom Pass

Improve London’s living environment by:

  • Protecting the green belt from development
  • Tackling air pollution with tougher rules on HGVs, and encouraging greener vehicles and safer cycling
  • Creating more green spaces and cleaning up local parks so they are safe to visit and enjoy

Make London’s streets safer by:

  • Protecting neighbourhood police teams and keeping them on the street
  • Tackling the root causes of crime in local communities
  • Putting more police on public transport at night

All paid for without increasing Mayoral council tax.
