Across London, practitioners are engaged in a range of redevelopment projects aimed at transforming local places and the lives of those who live there. The successful delivery of major residential, commercial and retail projects is critical to the growth of the London economy, and to improving the well-being of residents across the Capital.
Understanding the challenges and opportunities facing these projects is a key focus at Future of London, where we continue to highlight best practice in regeneration, local service delivery and community development through our reports, seminars, and Communities in Transition field trips.
At the major projects end of the scale, FoL programmes on topics such as Crossrail and estate regeneration examine how the public sector can make the most of large-scale undertakings, while at the other end of the scale, our work on the Localism Act and Business Improvement Districts shows how change can be managed successfully at the community level.
Future of London is not currently planning any events under this theme – please check back soon.
