Wolmar for London wants to make London a more affordable, liveable and sustainable city

We love London; it's an incredible place – dynamic, diverse and full of opportunity.

However, London is at risk of becoming a city for the few rather than the many – a city that only the privileged can enjoy, a city where too many people live in cramped and miserable accommodation, a city blighted by poor air and a lack of quality public space. We think London is in danger of losing a lot of what makes it so special.

London politics also aren't working for Londoners. Instead of partisan and personality politics London needs a dedicated, ideas driven Mayor who works for Londoners and their needs.

This is why I'm running to be the next Mayor of London. I want to make London a city that everyone can live in, afford and enjoy.

The election is in 2016, and for a long time I was the only declared candidate. I announced my intention to run early because I believe the challenges that London faces require long-term thinking. The debate about how to address our housing crisis, improve our transport network and revitalise our public spaces must start now.

I cycle to all the meetings and speaking engagements for the campaign - with the occasional help of the odd bus or train - and so far have clocked up 1252 miles on my bicycle.

That is not the case. As examples from other countries have shown, treating the road casualties as a serious public health issue can lead to dramatic improvements in road safety. A radical new approach to the issue is required.

    Cycle superhighway should be welcomed

    Boris seems determined to leave a legacy and clearly the Cycle Superhighway would be a great one. At times it is important to put away party differences and simply get together to support the right policies. That is especially important with something that is as controversial and groundbreaking as the Superhighway scheme.
