In a statement issued this morning, City Hall said that Juliemma McLoughlin had been appointed as assistant director of planning, replacing Stewart Murray, who left last year. She will start in her new role in April, the statement said.

According to City Hall, McLoughlin has held the role of director of planning and growth at Hammersmith and Fulham Council for the last ten years, working on projects including Earl's Court, White City, Westfield and Chelsea's stadium redevelopment.

The statement said that McLoughlin will lead on the development of the new London Plan, the first draft of which is due later this year. McLoughlin will lead the GLA's planning department, the statement added.

Deputy mayor for planning, regeneration and skills, Jules Pipe, said: "I am delighted that Juliemma is joining City Hall as she brings an unrivalled depth of knowledge and expertise to the role.

"Juliemma stood out from a strong field and I am looking forward to working with her to deliver high quality design and good growth in London, which must include building more new and genuinely affordable homes for Londoners."

McLoughlin's predecessor Stewart Murray joined property consultancy GL Hearn as head of its development group last year.
