Transport-led development will be critical to unlocking key future areas of regeneration and growth in the capital, as London’s population continues to rise.

What does London need from the new Mayor to support its growth up to 2050, and where should our key future transport investments be focused to unlock new areas of growth?
What are the most successful approaches to transport investment to unlock areas of regeneration and housing? What is the growth potential of planned major improvement projects such as Crossrail 2, tube upgrades and new crossings? What are the future opportunities for development around London’s transport hubs? How are new partnerships delivering the housing, employment, and social infrastructure that the capital needs? And how are we approaching transport led development to create sustainable, mixed-use, communities? What does high density development look like around transport hubs?
This NLA half-day conference will bring together transport and infrastructure experts, planners, boroughs, developers and their consultants to debate and discuss how transport can unlock development and regeneration opportunities and what Sadiq Khan’s priorities should be as he starts his first 100 days in office.
