In recent years, public debate and policy has been keenly focused on ways to increase London’s housing supply. But though numbers are important, the quality of London’s places matters too.
At a time of such large-scale redevelopment and change in London, it’s a good time to take a step back and consider the new and changed places that we are creating, the principles and techniques that underpin successful neighbourhoods, and the challenges that face us at a time of continuing growth and accelerating social and technological change.
Our latest essay collection, Making Good: Shaping Places for People, brings together thinkers, planners, and practitioners to share their diverse experiences and expertise, and to bring fresh ideas to creating and sustaining quality of place in London.
Join us and an expert group of developers, architects, community organisations and government representatives for an informed and stimulating debate to launch the collection. Jules Pipe, Deputy Mayor for Planning, Regeneration and Skills, will give the opening address.
Catch up on the key talking points from the day with our Storify post below.
