Listening to Londoners - Community engagement in development

Friday 3 June 2016

08:30 - 10:00 (Registration from 08:00)

As London continues to grow, the need for measured and innovative community engagement has never been stronger.

How can London's boroughs and developers ensure that the public and all stakeholders are adequately informed of new development plans? Can more be done at planning stage to encourage a better sense of community within London’s key development areas?

London Festival of Architecture 2016


The 2016 London Festival of Architecture (LFA) celebrates London as a global hub of architecture. The theme of the London Festival of Architecture 2016 is “Community”, and the festival aims to connect with as many people as possible to demonstrate architecture’s relevance to London and its diverse communities.


‘Ignore the value of local residents at your peril’


Architects must work harder to truly engage with local communities in a bid to better understand the areas they are designing for and the people who will live there.
