As part of the preparation for the London Plan (the Mayor's Spatial Development Strategy) the
GLA commissioned URBED to prepare a report on London's suburbs, A City of Villages, which formed one of the Plan's background documents. URBED was then commissioned by a consortium of the GLA, LDA, ALG and TfL to develop 'Tools for Making London's Suburbs More Sustainable'. This Toolkit was published by the Mayor for formal consultation early in 2005.

The formal consultation and the practical testing of the Toolkit by Groundwork London helped inform the GLA's final Best Practice Guidance, 'Tomorrow's Suburbs: Tools for making London more sustainable', which was published in June 2006.
