Planning plays an important role in shaping our environment at night. Here you will find guidance on how to apply current London Plan policies to sustain and improve our rich culture and night-time economy. The business case for the night-time economy is obvious. It brings a staggering £26.3bn to London’s economy every year. It employs one in eight people in our city.
We now have a huge opportunity to make London’s night-time economy and culture an even richer proposition. But there are challenges to harnessing the full benefits of this part of our economy. We must work with local authorities, residents, revellers, night-time workers, police, local businesses and transport providers. A balanced approach will be the key to success.
