Private Event

Lessons from the future: what is life really like in a sustainable neighbourhood?

This event has already taken place.

From architects’ vision to everyday life – what can we learn from people’s experience of living in London’s newest neighbourhood?  

On Tuesday 24 January, we brought together builders, planners, sustainability experts, engineers, local authority leaders, placemakers and policymakers, to: 

  • Bring to life what living in a new low carbon neighbourhood is really like.
  • Highlight the lessons from Olympic legacy developments for design, sustainability and liveability.
  • Put a spotlight on the role of Post Occupancy Evaluation (POE) for developers and local authorities.

The event started with a presentation of LLDC’s (London Legacy Development Corporation) recently launched Post Occupancy Evaluation (POE) report on Chobham Manor, was followed by a 40-minute panel discussion and a 30-minute group discussion.
