(the) Greater London Authority


(the) Greater London Authority
the Greater London Authority [the Greater London Authority] (abbr the GLA)
the local authority that is responsible for ↑Greater London. It is made up of an elected ↑Mayor of London, the separately elected ↑London Assembly, and about 500 staff to help the Mayor and Assembly in their duties. From 1983 to 2000 there was no single authority responsible for London; each borough was responsible for itself. In 2000 the GLA was created to fulfil the needs of London as a whole and to work with the boroughs in areas such as transport, planning, economic development, the environment, police, fire and emergency services, culture and health.
