Administrative / Biographical History

Although Percy Johnson-Marshall was most involved with the Town Planning Committee, there were a number of other London County Council Committees which he consulted the papers of. The Housing Committee formulated the housing policies of London County Council and directed the work of officials in its Housing Department. It had many sub-committees, including the Development and Management Sub-Committee, which dealt with providing new Council housing. This might be designed by the Architect's Department or by private sector architect's, with work carried out either by London County Council direct labour organisation or contracted out to construction firms. There were also London County Council committees for Parks, Roads and Education, which itself had sub-committees for Schools, School Planning, and Further Education.
