London's Towns

Monday 29 June 2009

The Outer London Commission is due to publish its initial findings at the end of this month - assessing how different parts of Outer London can better realise their economic potential, as well as opportunity and intensification areas and industrial locations.

It will also assess the concept of 'growth hubs' (a new type of business location), whether these can be distinct from and complement other sorts of business location, and where they might best be located as a new component of London's economic geography.

NLA's 2008 exhibition 'London's Towns: Shaping the polycentric city' examined the issues affecting the planning, development and future potential of London's towns and urban centres. Download a copy of the catalogue here.
