I believe the only Jet airliners certified for operation from London-City are the BAE146/RJ family and the Fokker F70.
AFAIK, neither the CRJ nor the ERJ-145 have been approved for operations from LCY, in particular for the steep approach. Also, neither were intended for short-field ops, and the ERJ-145 was retricted operating out of Southampton's 6000ft runway before the aircraft's rudder was given more authority in event of an engine failiure. The ERJ-145 lacks leading-edge slats and most do not have reverse-thrust as it is optional, increasing runway requirements.
