The Greater London Authority has appointed a new assistant director of planning who will lead the development of a new London plan for development across the city.
Juliemma McLoughlin replace Stewart Murray who left last year and will start in the role in April in what is a crucial role in leading City Hall’s planning team and delivering the Mayor’s manifesto pledges on planning and development across the capital.
She is currently director of planning and growth at the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, a role she has held for the last 10 years when she was responsible for work on a number of high profile projects including Earl’s Court, White City, Westfield and Chelsea FC’s stadium redevelopment.
Prior to joining Hammersmith and Fulham, she held senior planning posts in London and Sydney, including the London Borough of Newham and the Sydney Ports Corporation, part of the New South Wales state government.
She will lead the GLA’s planning department which examines applications for a wide range of residential and commercial developments and work closely with the Homes for Londoners team to support the Mayor’s efforts to significantly increase the number of genuinely affordable homes in London.
‘I look forward to helping shape development across London and helping the Mayor deliver more of the genuinely affordable homes the capital needs,’ said McLoughlin.
