New London Architecture

The New London Agenda is a multi-year project that will develop a vision for London, alongside practical policy outcomes setting out how the built environment sector can deliver London’s needs. It will be used as a tool to influence City Hall in adopting this vision and ultimately shape the evolution of the next London Plan.

The project will be developed over the course of two years and its first edition will be launched in Autumn 2023, ahead of the next Mayoral election in Spring 2024.

NLA’s role has been instrumental in raising the voice of the built environment sector in London, making the case for its critical role in supporting the capital to address its urban challenges and ultimately improve the quality of the urban environment for both current and future generations. As an aggregator, NLA provides a forum for all those involved in shaping London to generate new ideas and share solutions, and as an initiator, NLA sets the agenda to influence policy so that those ideas can become reality.
