WINTER IS COMING

Rishi Sunak’s Winter Economic Plan has been all over the news and we are likely to be hearing more of the detail over the coming weeks. The package of measures, centred on a new Jobs Support Scheme, is as important for London as it is for any other part of the country.

SECOND WAVE OF WOE?

The New Year’s Eve fireworks are cancelled, as is the Lord Mayor’s show and presumably plenty of other exciting plans and calendar events. While we are not in full lockdown again, it is clear that new measures will be yet another blow to London’s already suffering economy (not to mention our collective mood).

A BRIDGE TOO FAR?

The Transport Secretary has parachuted in Baroness Vere to lead the charge to save the Hammersmith Bridge, which makes us wonder (once again) why everyone is so keen on fighting over just about everything these days?

'BACK TO WORK'

That’s the message, even if the reality is still not quite as simple. September marks a broad, if fragmented, effort to reopen workplaces and schools – as well as the return of Parliament and the London Assembly.

OUT OF THE FRYING PAN...

The heatwave is now blessedly past, but London is in no way cooling down. Between the pandemic’s slow burn and heated political developments, the last two weeks make for a sizzling (not to mention a tad longer than usual) LDN edition.

A (PLANNING) STORM IS COMING...

It is rare that we start LDN with LCA news. But last week we made it to 21 and so now have the keys to….well our office, as we re-opened to staff who want to come in to work (and use the AC)! As London, and central London especially, faces a difficult recovery, we certainly feel some sense of duty in unlocking our Covent Garden doors once again.

TUBE TURBULENCE

A month or two ago, deep into crisis mode, we used this space to reflect on how difficult it was to plan ahead under such strange circumstances - noting that there would soon come a time when we would all need to start thinking beyond the ultra-short term once again.

A TENTATIVE RETURN

Today we have re-opened our office at Berkshire House. It’s a tentative start, with lots of safety measures in place. While it’s entirely voluntary, we know that many of the team are excited about being back at LCA Towers. Read more about this in today’s LDN and we hope to see many of you face to face in the weeks ahead.

RISHI MAKES IT RAIN

This week’s edition comes 15 years and two days after the enormous high of London winning the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and then the massive low, one day later, when 52 people lost their lives as a result of terrorist bombings on the transport system on 7/7.
