The decisions we make as a Municipality will conform with and support The London Plan. Being open and transparent in our decision making will allow all Londoners to see that the values, vision and priorities of the Plan are being adhered to in every decision we make.
To achieve our goals, we will take a collaborate approach to planning, working with stakeholders such as neighbourhoods, developers, government agencies and members of the general public.
We will provide leadership within the community to implement The London Plan, providing guidance and inspiration in all of our processes and decision making.
We will employ genuine and effective public engagement techniques to include all Londoners in our planning processes. We will consider all Londoners in the plans and decisions we make.
We will place a high value on creativity and innovation in all the planning we do so that we can find new and effective ways to meet the challenges and opportunities that will present themselves to London over the next 20 years.
Exciting, Exceptional, Connected
To achieve our vision, we will need to focus on certain City-building activities. This is not to say that we will not engage in planning activities that move outside of these directions; rather, these directions give a strong sense of where we will be focusing our efforts to “raise the bar” from the status quo so that we can drive towards the future London we envision. The directions shown below are not listed in order of importance – they are all of equal importance to delivering our vision for London.
#1 Plan strategically for a prosperous city

#3 Celebrate and support London as a culturally rich, creative and diverse city
#4 Become one of the greenest cities in Canada
