Ahead of the London Mayoral Election, West London Business (WLB) has released a Manifesto, setting out the key priorities for London’s new Mayor, that will benefit those who live and work in the West London vicinity: Inclusive employment; Innovation and growth; Education and skills; The built environment; Climate change; and Energy & infrastructure.

West London is the world’s most connected place. It is a £70bn+ economic powerhouse – with Heathrow Airport, the UK’s global gateway; 2 million residents and a workforce with a wide range of skills; a world-leading TV and film production cluster; the White City Innovation District; and Park Royal – the UK’s largest and most successful industrial estate.

Andrew Dakers, CEO, West London Business, said: “Absolutely critical to West London’s contribution to the capital and UK’s growth is energy supply – the latest research indicates urgent grid reinforcement upwards of 2,300 MVA is needed. We urge the new Mayor to work with WLB and other stakeholders in securing accelerated investment from National Grid in the high voltage transmission network serving West London.”

“I encourage Londoners based in the west of our capital to get out and vote next Thursday 2nd May, to have a say on who will be next to lead the greatest city in the world.”
