As polling day gets ever closer for Londoners and the mayoral elections come to a head, what are each of the candidates proposing to change about London?
getwestlondon takes a look at the pledges made by Labour party's Sadiq Khan to see what London could look like under the man who is the bookies' favourite to be elected.
In a speech given during the manifesto launch, he said: "London gave me the opportunities to go from the council estate where I grew up, to helping to run a business, serving as Transport Minister and now running for Mayor.”
“I had the helping hand of a good state school, a place at university that I could afford, and ultimately, good jobs for my wife and me that enabled us to buy a family home.
“This manifesto will ensure all Londoners get the opportunities that our city gave to me.”
Here are 14 key things to take away from the party's manifesto.
1. Thousands of new homes to be built for Londoners
Khan has pledged to build 800,000 homes in the first year, with half of those to be "affordable homes" and give Londoners first dibs to buy them over buy-to-let purchasers or overseas investors.
2. Land owned by public bodies to be used for building
Using Mayoral powers, Khan aims to use the land owned by public bodies such as Transport for London (TfL) to develop on that land, and not green belt.
3. Freeze travel fares for London commuters
Sadiq's controversial plan to freeze TfL transport fares for four years has come in for some criticism. However, he also would like to introduce a one-hour bus ‘Hopper’ ticket, paid for by making TfL more efficient and exploring new revenue-raising opportunities.
4. Restore neighbourhood policing to reduce knife crime
Khan has also promised to make London safer, with action to restore neighbourhood policing which in turn should assist in tackling gangs and knife crime.
5. Name and shame private landlords
Private landlords who are treating tenants badly or not carrying out necessary work on properties will be openly named and shamed by working more closely with boroughs to identify the major issues.
6. Use a more effective method to tackle 'home grown terrorism'
Critical of the government's 'Prevent' programme to tackle radicalisation, Khan plans to work with internet providers to close down extremist websites and even completely overhaul the anti-extremism programme.
7. Show opposition to Heathrow Airport expansion
The Mayoral hopeful has come out in opposition of Heathrow expansion, although he agrees there is a need to expand a new runway.
8. Chelsea Crossrail 2 plans to be reviewed
The planned station on King's Road is one the Labour candidate has said he will review should be become Mayor to ensure "TfL takes residents’ views into account".
9. A 'clean energy revolution' for London
'Energy for Londoners', a not-for-profit company that will take a lead on clean and green energy across the city to make it reach its air pollution targets
10. Introduce a system which creates 'fairer economy'
The party plans on introducing 'Establish Skills for Londoners', a new partnership with London’s businesses to ensure Londoners have the skills for the jobs of the future
11. Make the Metropolitan Police more diverse
Khan has announced he intends to increase the number of black officers in the Metropolitan Police if elected into office to create a "force which reflects the city it is charged with keeping safe".
12. Plant trees near schools and introduce environmentally friendly buses
In order to create a greener city, the party aims to plant two million trees near schools in the city, as well as introduce buses which release less fumes. There is also the plan to support community generation initiatives, install solar PV on public buildings and divesting London’s pension fund from fossil fuels.
13. Support London’s entrepreneurs and small businesses
Push for London to be more of a tech city, protect small business spaces, create more start- up spaces and improving the digital infrastructure.
14. Fight for gender equality in jobs and pay
In a speech in March, Khan said he will be "putting the fight for gender equality at the very heart of my Manifesto for all Londoners" by challenging any barriers which stand between women and their potential success.
