London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority (LFEPA) runs London Fire Brigade (LFB). The 17 members of LFEPA are appointed by the Mayor of London. Eight are nominated from the London Assembly, seven are nominated from the London boroughs and two are Mayoral appointees.

LFB is the busiest fire and rescue service in the country and one of the largest firefighting and rescue organisations in the world. We are here to make London a safer city and our vision is to be a world class fire and rescue service for London, Londoners and visitors. As well as responding to fires and other emergencies, our work has developed over the years to also place a strong emphasis on fire prevention and community safety.

LFEPA is responsible for agreeing the London Safety Plan, a four-year plan that outlines what LFB will do to help make London a safer city.  This was published in March 2017, and is part of the driving force behind these proposals.

The proposals for the redeveloped LFB training centre in Croydon have been agreed by LFEPA Resources Committee, which has responsibility for money, people, property, and the performance related to those responsibilities.
