What is the future of public space in London? As more of London’s private land opens for public access, what are the key challenges being tackled to ensure places function for all? How will these new places be managed and maintained and how is good quality public space designed and delivered?

Debate around the challenges of privately owned and managed public spaces. Showcase of best practice and a discussion around the future of public and private land in the city.
