The Big Debate: Shaping the next London Plan

This event has already taken place.

How do we build a great city for Londoners in a period of major growth?

Have your say on the future shape of the capital at this major free debate on the next London Plan, hosted by the NLA in partnership with leading London organisations including Centre for London.

Ben Rogers, Director of Centre for London, will join one of several expert panels including Deputy Mayors, built environment professionals and other leading commentators.  The debates will present new ideas and thinking on issues ranging from where London’s growth is located, to the delivery of higher-density neighbourhoods and delivering better streets and spaces.

Audience members will be able to engage through Q&A sessions and regular polls throughout the evening to share their thoughts on the topics being debated.

With up to 1,000 built environment professionals, academics and community representatives in the room, this will present an unrivalled ability to gather an expert response to the Mayor’s desire for good growth.
