The Mayor wants London to be the ‘best big city in the world’. His work includes making it easier for people to move in and around the city, improving London’s environment, helping the capital’s businesses to thrive, providing Londoners with more affordable housing and giving young people in London more opportunities.
The Mayor runs important services in London like policing, fire and transport, with an annual budget of £17bn.
The London Assembly holds the Mayor to account on behalf of Londoners. It regularly questions the Mayor and investigates important issues in London.
Together, we are the Greater London Authority. Based at City Hall, more than 800 staff are employed to support the Mayor and Assembly in their roles.
