Farrell to lead outer London Commission

Sir Terry Farrell has been appointed by London Mayor Boris Johnson to lead on design issues on the Mayor's new Outer London Commission currently being set up under the chairmanship, William McKee.

The remit of the Outer London Commission is to advise the Mayor on the London Plan and other policies to ensure outer London “realises its full potential”.

The new Commission will identify up to five areas to become outer London growth hubs. The aim is to pinpoint successful town centres with the potential to improve further and support their development through the Mayor's London Plan and other policies. This will ensure existing vibrant town centres play their full role in guaranteeing the continued success of London’s economy.

The Commission will also showcase examples of town centre excellence, by looking at best practices which have contributed to the success of our existing outer London town centres, to inform the Mayor’s future policy development. It will report back to the Mayor in 2009.

Sir Terry Farrell said:
“I am delighted to have been appointed by the Mayor to this important position. London’s outer boroughs cannot afford to be overlooked as they contain some of the most important drivers of London’s future success."
