47 things Sadiq Khan promised to do in his manifesto (I'll just put this here, and come back to it over the next four years)
Build thousands more homes for Londoners each year.
Set an ambitious target of 50 per cent of new homes being genuinely affordable.
Provide homes to buy where we can give Londoners first dibs – building on brownfield public land and using the Mayor’s planning powers to their fullest extent.
Oppose building on the Green Belt, which is even more important today than it was when it was created.
Exercise ‘use it or lose it’ powers to make sure developers who have planning permission build homes and do not land-bank.
Provide live-work units as part of the Mayor’s affordable housing programme.
Name and shame rogue landlords and ensure tenants have access to this information online
Bus and tube
Freeze all TfL fares for four years - Londoners won’t pay a penny more for their travel in 2020 than they do today.
Introduce ‘The Hopper’ – a new one-hour bus ticket allowing unlimited changes within an hour, so that a £1.50 single ticket pays for a full journey.
Continue to support both Oyster and contactless payment card methods and ensure fare structures remain equal so that nobody is disadvantaged by choosing either payment method.
Set a target of only buying clean electric or hydrogen buses from 2020
Deliver the Night Tube if Boris Johnson fails to get it up and running by May
Reduce the number of days lost to strike action, by maintaining better industrial relations
Examine the impact of ticket office closures and explore what could be done at key locations to ensure everyone is able to purchase tickets and access the information they need to get around London, while keeping passengers safe
Plan for the long term, securing Crossrail 2, Bakerloo line and London Overground extensions, as well as new river crossings...
...and move on to discussions about Crossrail 3 and new orbital links.
Walking and cycling
Increase the proportion of TfL’s budget spent on cycling.
More segregated cycle routes, action on dangerous junctions, and safer lorries
Freeze all charges for the Mayor’s cycle hire scheme for four years
Pedestrianise Oxford Street
Revive plans to part-pedestrianise Parliament Square.
Open up more walking routes around London, and work with local authorities and TfL to improve the London Loop and Capital Ring walks.
Complete the Thames Path, working with boroughs, landowners and business to complete missing sections and protect access to what is already open.
Work to break down some of the city’s physical barriers, such as by backing the Rotherhithe-Canary Wharf cycle and pedestrian bridge
Retain the exclusive right of licensed black taxi drivers to use bus lanes and ply for hire.
Maintain the Congestion Charge at its current level.
Support new aviation capacity for London, backing a second runway at Gatwick and reviewing Boris Johnson’s decision on London City.
Oppose a third runway at Heathrow and, if the Government chooses to pursue this option, continue to call for a new runway at Gatwick
Fire and police
A review of the resourcing of our fire service
Sell Boris Johnson’s water cannon and spend the receipts on youth projects aimed at decreasing gang crime.
Direct the Met to adopt a strict zero tolerance approach to hate crime
Restore London’s air quality to legal and safe levels
Consult on bringing forward the Ultra-Low Emission Zone and expanding it along major arterial routes or a wider section of central London.
Introduce Clean Bus Corridors – prioritising new, clean buses for those services which run on the most polluted roads in the city
Make London the first ‘National Park City’
Create a Business Advisory Board – made up of experts, not of political allies – to provide me with guidance and insight to find the solutions to London’s growth challenges and to provide feedback on my policy.
Put an open data strategy at the heart of London government
Pay all employees of the GLA and its agencies the London Living Wage as a minimum, and require that all contractors and suppliers do the same
Take all possible steps to divest the London Pension Fund Authority of its remaining investments in fossil fuel industries.
Establish a London Borough of Culture, like the European City of Culture, so that every year a different borough is the focus of a celebration of the city’s arts and culture.
Create a Love London Pass, giving Londoners discounts and reductions across the city to exhibitions, galleries, restaurants, shows and concerts.
