As the Outer London Commission prepares its final report for Boris Johnson we look at how London’s town centres have had to diversify their offer and create a broader social experience in order to counter the impact of online shopping and to attract people back to the high streets of the capital.

How these centres deliver a more mixed and diverse economy? What role do they have to play in the delivery of the housing and affordable workspace that London’s population growth demands?

These are some of the key questions which will be discussed in this NLA half day conference where retail experts, developers, boroughs, architects and industry specialists will examine what the opportunities and challenges are for outer London’s town centres.

Regeneration of town centres


London’s town centres should concentrate more on intensification, residential and becoming mixed use areas focused on ‘experience’ than retail alone.
