Development around London’s waterways is surging, putting pressure on waterside spaces to cater to diverse uses – living, leisure, commuting, freight – while safeguarding the environment. At the same time, fragmented ownership and management of waterways bring a host of governance challenges.
Throughout 2019, Future of London's major project, Making the Most of London's Waterways, engaged 300 practitioners through field trips plus a workshop, roundtable, and conference, with a goal of sharing strategies and partnerships to better manage competing demands and ensure sustainable growth around waterways.
Join us on 11 December as we share lessons learned and discuss next steps for a more coordinated approach to one of London's most treasured and valuable assets.
The event will include:
- Project findings with Amanda Robinson, Head of Knowledge, and Nicola Mathers, Chief Executive, Future of London
- Responses from project sponsors - speakers tbc in coming weeks; watch the registration page (link below) for info
- Discussion and Q&A
- Time for networking
This event is free to attend thanks to core project supporters Arup, Avison Young, Hadley, and Pollard Thomas Edwards and report sponsor the Canal & River Trust, but places are limited and registration is essential.
