London in the 21st Century: : London’s Future17 April 1996
What were the priorities of Londoners in the run-up to the Millennium? What role should planning and the built environment play in its future?

How would the requirements of a free-market economy and the competitiveness of a world city be affected?
It was in this influential debate, that Tony Blair would announce his pledge to hold a referendum for a Mayor for London.
