As jobs and housing fight for the ever reducing availability of land, is there a new mix which could help to solve these challenges in London?

The Mayor’s draft London Plan marks a significant change in direction on industrial land for housing, now calling for “no net loss of industrial floorspace”.

Join us at a panel discussion to consider how we can fund, deliver and manage successful commercial activities in mixed use schemes at the launch of a new report, written jointly by Centre for London, GVA, 00 Architecture and Real Urbanism.
