New London Architecture


Planning a growing city that works for all Londoners

Under new communities’ minister Michael Gove, planning reforms announced in 2020 have been subject to a rethink. From the original “build, build, build” shake-up of the planning system to the “levelling up” agenda, the planning system is under scrutiny in order to fuel the post-pandemic recovery. With the ongoing planning reforms, do we have the right tools to carefully plan for high-quality environments where people want to ‘live, work and play’? Do local authorities have the right skills and resources to deliver against the government’s white paper? 
On the other hand, the pandemic has also accelerated the digitalisation of the planning system, leading to significant, and potentially long-lasting, changes in the way we approach consultation and accessibility of information and data. How can communities get better involved in shaping local places? And how should the regeneration of existing areas be best managed?
NLA’s Planning programme looks at the rapidly changing shape of London through examining spatial and strategic plans at a local as well as London-wide level.
