With a 800 year history this estate, owned by a public authority, cannot be represented by a defined area of land. It comprises many sites and buildings and uses this resource to support and promote the business City, to provide modern, efficient and high quality local and policing services for our communities and to supply valued services for London and the nation. It is managed with the aim of being able to continue in this role in the long term.
Michael Welbank, Chief Commoner and Past Chairman of the Planning and Transportation Committee. He will discuss the history of this unique estate, the origins and complexities of its distinctive objectives and the ways in which it benefits London.
