Supporting a growing city that works for all Londoners
In the midst of the pandemic, the government set to shake up the planning system through their “Planning for the future” reform, in order to fuel the post-pandemic recovery and “build build build” faster and better. COVID-19 and the successive lockdowns have 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.
Is the current planning system fit to take decisions that will shape the London of the future? With the new London Plan to be imminently published, 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? How can communities get 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.
