His job will start on January 9th.
Kolvin QC comments about his appointment-
"As the capital grows, we must plan for a growing night-time economy for the whole of Greater London – something that can only be achieved through proper partnerships with stakeholders, strategic planning, and investment in infrastructure.
It’s vital that we ensure that everyone benefits from a thriving night-time economy – from those who want a great night out, to those who want a good night’s sleep. I look forward to working with the capital’s new Night Czar, Amy Lamé, so that we can develop the role of London as the global leader of the night-time economy.”As he mentioned in above, he will be working largely with Night Czar Amy Lamé on ensuring that nightlife remains in the heart of the city rather than pushing it out towards the outskirts.
