CITY OF LONDON CORPORATION
The City of London Corporation provides local authority services for the City of London, also known as the Square Mile. The residential population of this small area is approximately 8,000 people, however over 400,000 people commute into the City every day for work and over 10 million visit as tourists each year. Home to the financial district and historic centre of London, it is one of the 33 areas with local authority responsibilities into which the capital is divided, with a uniquely wide-ranging remit that goes beyond that of an ordinary local authority, with three main aims: to support and promote London and the world’s leading international financial and business centre; to work in partnership with local communities to increase skills, employment and opportunities for all Londoners, and to enhance the capital as a hub of culture, history, and green spaces for all.
