Giving local authorities a platform for discussing shared issues and best practice

London’s local authorities play a key role in the ongoing development of our neighbourhoods, and are under greater strain than ever before – contending with huge growth targets, greater demand and fewer resources. Working with the capital’s 33 local authorities, this programme gives a platform for understanding how the central, inner and outer regions of London are accommodating growth, and provides a forum for promoting the future plans of areas undergoing change.

Discussing shared issues and best practices, the programme aids London’s boroughs in delivering growth strategies, regenerating council estates and town centres, improving social infrastructure provision, and forming successful public/private partnerships.

Key themes

  • Providing quality housing on public land 
  • Supporting and implementing good growth
  • Encouraging meanwhile uses with land owners
  • Lessons learnt from setting up new districts – community engagement, infrastructure and reuse of assets
