As demand for housing in London continues to grow, what role do London's town centres have to play in delivering housing intensification and a more diverse economy? According to a recent GLA report, London is forecast an additional 1.9 million people in London by 2036, posing the challenge of where to house them and where they will work, as well as how London will provide for the increased consumer expenditure this will bring.
In this context, what is the strategy and long-term vision for London’s high streets and town centres? How far can London's outer town centres deliver the intensity of housing development that London needs? What impact will proposed new infrastructure investments have, and how are the local authorities preparing for this growth? How will proposed changes to use classes impact the functioning of our high streets? And how can town centres deliver a more mixed and diverse economy, including the growth of the SME market?
This NLA half-day conference will hear from planners, developers, boroughs, architects and industry specialists to examine what the opportunities and challenges are for outer London’s high streets and town centres.
