How will new £70m funds help parts of London hit by violent disorder?


Members of the London Assembly will tomorrow ask Mayoral Adviser Sir Peter Rogers about the £70 million[1] pledged to help regenerate town centres and high streets across London damaged by last month’s vandalism and looting.

The Budget and Performance Committee will ask Sir Peter about the effectiveness of short-term recovery programmes and the longer-term regeneration schemes. Members will also explore the implications of the Greater London Authority (GLA) borrowing £46.2 million to finance the Mayor’s regeneration fund.

During the second part of the meeting, the Committee will look at the likely effect of the GLA taking over the activities of the London Development Agency (LDA) and Home Communities Agency (HCA) in London.

The following guests will attend the meeting:
