Consulting Londoners

We're working for London and it's critical that Londoners have their say on the work that we do.

Involving Londoners in decisions

It's not just about government being more open, it's about making policies more effective by listening to and taking on board the views of the public and interested groups.

Londoners should have a say on how their city is run, which is why we consult Londoners on each and every strategy the Mayor produces. To ensure we achieve the best understanding of public opinion that we can, we use a number of different approaches:

  • Our Talk London online community, a place to discuss London's big issues and shape and steer the policy decisions of the future.
  • Face to face survey work, such as the Annual London Survey and ad-hoc pieces of research such as the Young Londoners' Survey and Refugee Survey.
  • Regular telephone surveys covering a range of policy areas.
  • Online survey and digital engagement tools to allow Londoners to engage with specific strategies.

If you would like to be kept informed about consultations please sign up to Talk London.

If you have a general enquiry for the Mayor or GLA please email
