This chapter examines the relationships between governance capacities in London and future planning practices in the wake of economic austerity agendas. It describes the complex public-private sector entanglements that now exist in the city and the legacies left by earlier rounds of reform that have seen the wide-scale privatisation of welfare assets and services. It discusses the structural limitations that privatisation and private financing have placed on state capacities, and the broader implications of change for the future governance and management of London. It concludes with some reflections on wider understandings of localism, and the importance of asset ownership and management to the future of London's sustainability.

Keywords:   austerity agenda, private financing, London's localisation, welfare privatisation
