Ideas above your station: Exploring the potential for developing stations in London

This event has already taken place.

Join us for the launch of Ideas Above Your Station in which the possibility of using the land above stations is explored.


In a city where land comes at a premium, London is under increasing pressure to use space more efficiently and to concentrate dense development at transport hubs. Centre for London’s new report, Ideas above your Stationasks how we can make the most of the opportunities offered by London’s stations.

The report investigates the irregular take-up of station densification projects in London, assesses the viability of over-site development in different parts of the city and asks whether current planning, funding and financing policy helps or hinders these projects.

During this event we will explore how we can achieve greater co-ordination between transport operators, developers and policymakers to improve London’s stations and the neighbourhoods around them. It will ask what sort of places should London’s densified stations become? And to what extent does the funding and policy environment need to change to support the delivery of quality station densification projects?
