The London Development Agency (LDA) is the Regional Development Agency for Greater London, England. It is a functional body of the Greater London Authority. Its purpose is to drive sustainable economic growth within London.

The agency is expected to close in 2012, with the loss of 320 employees, as a result of the coalition government's spending review.[2]

The LDA is based at 197 Blackfriars Road, Southwark, south London (across the street from Southwark tube station). The LDA Olympic Land team is based at London 2012 headquarters in Docklands.
