A range of developments are changing the way we move around the city. As London’s population expands, its roads and streets are coming under growing pressure. Air pollution, road safety and cost of travel are all major public concerns. And despite recent improvements, too much of London’s public realm still feels undervalued and neglected.
As part of a wider research project, Centre for London is holding a roundtable to explore how London can plan and design large-scale developments, which embrace new forms of mobility and encourage people to choose more efficient, less polluting and healthier forms of travel.
Using current plans for new developments in the capital as case studies, this event will discuss:
- How can we plan and design new developments so that they can adapt to new mobility technologies and services, and promote sustainable, healthy lifestyles?
- How can planners, architects and developers lock in car-free lifestyles from the beginning, and encourage people to walk, run and cycle or use shared transport services?
- How should new developments balance the requirements of different user groups, from residents to businesses and service providers?
- What can be done to harness the opportunities of new technologies and to make London a leading centre of mobility innovation?
This private event is hosted by Ben Rogers, Director of Centre for London, and the Directors of British Land, Canada Water. It will bring together leaders and experts from across the public and private sectors, from leading developers to local authorities as well as representatives from the Mayor’s office.
This event is invite-only. If you would like to register your interest to attend please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
