With London’s population growing at an unprecedented level – expected to grow to over 11 million by 2050 – Mayor Sadiq Khan has urged that development to accommodate this huge shift should be ‘good growth’, and that all new development must be contained within London’s boundaries to protect the Green Belt. But what does that mean for the capital’s widely celebrated built environment that has developed over the past 2,000 years – from Roman, Medieval, Neo Gothic, Elizabethan, Georgian and Regency, to Art Deco, Brutalist and Postmodern? How do we ensure a nuanced approach for development that allows the city to absorb and facilitate growth whilst retaining its heritage?
A year-round programme showcases the most sympathetic and innovative approaches taken with the capital’s many listed buildings, major areas of regeneration and the successful juxtaposition of old and new. It examines how the industry can harness London’s heritage to create attractive and financially viable schemes, and debates whether current regulations and planning procedures are supporting development and heritage concerns alike.
