This rises to 1.31 million once second choice votes are included. So it's fair to say that far more Londoners voted for Brexit than for Sadiq Khan, indeed more than twice as many as Khan's first round votes. However it's a slightly bizarre claim. So what if more voted for Brexit than Khan? They're different votes for different things, and it's perhaps worth mentioning that more Londoners voted remain than have voted for anything else in history.
According to the latest YouGov poll Sadiq Khan's net approval is +16 which puts him in the 89th percentile for approval (Higher than 89% of other public figures).

By comparison this is higher than virtually all other well known British politicians including Theresa May at -33, Boris Johnson at -49, Jeremy Corbyn at +13 and Vince Cable at -5

London Mayor rips up old planning rules for more homes

http://www.constructionenquirer.com/...or-more-homes/

Quote:
Khan has removed outdated constraints and rigid density guidelines in the London Plan to give a boost to the number of new and affordable homes given planning permission.

He has set a new London-wide house building target by 2029 of 650,000 new homes – more than double the current delivery rate.

The Mayor also wants to see more than 250,000 new homes built in London’s 13 outer suburbs as part of this development plan.

Khan has thrown out the previous Mayor’s policy, which set maximum rules for the number of homes on developments, in favour of boosting the number of well-designed homes sites can deliver.

He believes increased numbers of homes should be built on sites near town centres or good public transport, reducing the need for car parking spaces within developments.

Cory unveils £500m plan for second London EfW plant

http://www.constructionenquirer.com/...don-efw-plant/

Quote:
Energy from waste scheme developer Cory Riverside Energy has set out ambitious plans to build an integrated, low-carbon energy park at its site in Belvedere, South East London.

Construction is targeted to begin in 2021, and the Energy Park is expected to be fully operational by 2024.

Cory said it had already selected Hitachi Zosen Inova as its engineering, procurement and construction contractor, which delivered the existing Riverside Energy Recovery Facility.

The energy park, expected to cost around £500m to build, will comprise a range of technologies including waste energy recovery, anaerobic digestion, solar panels, and battery storage.

This will enable the company to convert even more of London’s residual “black bin” waste into green electricity, particularly during times of peak usage, and produce cheap heat for export to nearby homes and businesses.
