Over the last two years, members of the Mayor’s Design Advisory Group (MDAG), chaired by Daniel Moylan, have been developing the Good Growth Agendas, setting out a series of pragmatic recommendations and guidance for City Hall, industry professionals and the next London Mayor, on how London can deliver a high-quality and socially inclusive environment through ‘good growth’.
London is growing and experts have predicted that there will be at least 10 million people living in the capital by 2030. Birth rates are on the up, Londoners are living longer and are requiring places in which to live that match their active lifestyles. At the same time, more people want to come here, stay here and work here than ever before. The impact on London’s physical form, infrastructure, schools and hospitals will be significant, and this will be a key issue for the next London Mayor to address.
Four strategic papers looking at different aspects of Good Growth and their recommendations will be launched throughout February at a series of NLA breakfast talks.
The first paper, Growing London, addresses the question of what shape a future London will take, where people are going to live, and how we can balance an increase in density with high quality design. Public London examines how London’s streets and public spaces can be designed, managed and delivered to support increasing pressures on movement and recreation. Ageing London examines how we can create a world-class city to grow old in, provide opportunities for increased entrepreneurship and creativity, as London’s residents live longer. The final paper Shaping London explores how the public sector can develop the resource and skills to meet these challenges and deliver better places for Londoners.
