Policy Forum for London

The future for planning in London - growth, sustainability and infrastructure

May 2018

Timed as the GLA considers responses to the draft London Plan - which included proposals to increase the supply, affordability and density of new homes - this seminar focused on the future for London’s planning framework, and its implications for the Capital’s housing, transport, environment and economic development.

Further sessions discussed what London’s local communities and businesses need from the Mayor’s final plan, and the implications for London’s social infrastructure - looking at key issues around connectivity, culture, regeneration, urban design and public health.

The seminar brought together senior officials from the GLA and central government departments, alongside representatives from developers, investors, lawyers, consultants, business associations, local authorities, and neighbourhood groups - as well as representatives of the national and trade media.

Shortly after every Policy Forum for London seminar, a briefing document is produced. This is distributed to all delegates on the day as well as to our policymaker contacts in government, and to stakeholders more widely.

A seminar publication provides a timely record of proceedings, and acts as a guide to the latest thinking on current policy issues for those unable to be at the event.
