Building places depends on much more than bricks and mortar. Too many developments, towns and cities fail because the reality of what people and communities want and need has been neglected in their creation.

As London undergoes massive transformation through large-scale regeneration, this breakfast talk will invite a series of expert speakers to discuss their views on how successfully the industry is ensuring that the process and end results deliver better lives and opportunities for Londoners.
