London’s Estates, a complex network of ‘little villages’ spread across the city have made it unique among global cities. The long term approach to placemaking, regeneration and management allow London’s Estates to evolve, develop and reinvent themselves in response to changing demands and uncertain economic climates.

5 years on from NLA’s major Insight Study ‘The Great Estates - How London’s landowners shape the city’ we explore how London’s historical estates are supporting London’s future growth through the provision of new homes, work spaces, culture and improved public realm. 
Hearing from a series of key figures, we examine plans for development across London’s major estates and lessons to learn for future long-term landowners across the city.

With public and private stakeholders seeking to create financially sustainable and socially engaging places, what is the key to successful placemaking? What lessons can we take from London’s Great Estates in the long-term management and design of places across the capital, and how they can be adapted over generations as needs change? How can greater collaborative working between local authorities, BIDs and businesses improve traffic management, delivery consolidation and future digital infrastructure, to create better streets and public spaces?
