Sadiq Khan has lots in his manifesto to work for  businesses through partnership and support schemes.

A partnership with business

I will work in partnership with business to deliver solutions to the challenges that hold growth back, and to help spread opportunity throughout our city. I will:

  • Create a Business Advisory Board – made up of experts, not of political allies – to provide me with guidance and insight to find the solutions to London’s growth challenges and to feedback on my policy.
  • Involve business in decision making on key issues of policy and planning, from skills and housing costs, to transport infrastructure and business space.
  • Establish Skills for Londoners, working with business to ensure Londoners have the skills they need to grow.

Supporting small business and protecting business space

Our small businesses, start-ups and entrepreneurs are at the heart of our economy and our communities, and supporting them to grow, innovate and create wealth and jobs will be central to my plans. I will:

  • Prevent the loss of business space, by working with local authorities to stop the excessive conversion of commercial space under permitted development rights.
  • Promote the provision of small business and start-up premises in housing and commercial developments through the London Plan.
  • Provide live-work units as part of the Mayor’s affordable housing programme.
  • Support communities which want to keep the character of their high streets intact.
