London and the Wider South-East region accommodate one third of the population of England, and the growth projected for the next decades will mean the provision of millions of additional new homes, infrastructure and jobs.
In fact, London’s growth is not happening in isolation, and the deep connections with the Wider South East region need to be taken into account when planning for growth.
Do we have the planning tools to plan for regional growth without a regional plan? How will the proposed policies for the South East in the new draft London Plan will enable greater coordination between London and its neighbours? What are the key infrastructure that will be able to unlock further growth?
In this half day conference we discuss how London and the South East are increasingly in need of each other's to accommodate growth. How can we plan for major infrastructures, economic growth and meet housing needs beyond London’s boundaries? Should we think more strategically at regional level to achieve these goals?
