City of London

‚ÄčA uniquely diverse organisation

The City Corporation has a special role and wide remit that goes beyond that of an ordinary local authority. We look after the City of London on behalf of all who live, work and visit here and have
three primary functions.

We support and promote the City as the world leader in international finance and business services.
We provide modern, efficient and high quality local services and policing within the Square Mile for residents, workers and visitors.
We provide valued services to London and the nation as a whole, including our role as one of the most significant arts sponsors in the UK and our support for economic regeneration in the surrounding boroughs.

"Although 'battle' suggests destruction, these were some of the most constructive debates I've taken part in. This was civilised conflict in the best sense of both words."
