The tensions between economic growth, social inclusion and environmental sustainability are putting London, like other global cities, under pressure. Local authorities are needing to make trade-offs between new development and existing neighbourhoods to accommodate more housing and services. What impact will these choices have on the shape of London?

Muhammed Butt (@MAsgharButt2) is Leader of Brent Council.
