The current Mayor of London
Sadiq Khan of the Labour Party was voted in as the current Mayor of London on 5 May 2016.
London's Mayor works to promote economic and social development, and environmental improvement in the city. Before using his or her many powers the Mayor must consult with Londoners, and in all cases, the Mayor must promote equality of opportunity.
The Mayor sets out plans and policies for London covering:
- planning and development
- economic development and regeneration
- environmental issues including biodiversity, ambient noise, waste disposal and air quality.
These individual plans fit together to help deliver the Mayor's policies. Between them, these plans must also contribute to sustainable development and the health of Londoners.
The next Mayoral election will be held in 2020.
