The LSPU was set up after Margaret Thatcher had abolished the Greater London Council (GLC) by nine local borough councils because the abolition of the GLC left London bereft of any strategic planning authority. The LSPU was also abolished in 1988 when the local councils ran out of money to continue funding it. After which, until the appointment of an elected mayor of London, London was the only capital in Europe without a strategic planning authority, leaving London’s urban planning in utter chaos.
