New London Architecture

The New London Sounding Board, Committees and Expert Panels form a multi-disciplinary network of over 300 industry professionals and community leaders working across all sectors of the built environment. They help to drive the work of NLA, inform policy, and produce thought leadership.
Our New London Sounding Board, Committees and Expert Panels are crucial in shaping the New London Agenda, a multi-year project that sets a vision for the future of London and its built environment, presenting the top issues that need to be tackled over the next London political term, and the best new ideas and solutions that will deliver New London of the future. The groups drive its direction and taking soundings on ideas and evidence for inclusion, with NLA’s 15 Expert Panels and guest contributors feeding in and providing evidence as required.


NLA Committees will focus on helping to drive change for London and the industry, push forward core NLA flagship programmes, and establish valuable networks. As the New London Agenda takes shape, the Committees will increasingly be able to act on its aims and ambitions.
