London on the way - Transport-led development

London on the way - Transport-led development

This event has finished Took place on: Tuesday, 19th Jun 2018

The population in most major British and Danish cities will continue to grow in the years to come. How will we accommodate this growth? Where will these people live? How will they get to work, visit family and friends and explore all the wonderful things that the city has to offer?

For most growing cities, limited supply of residential and commercial opportunities means that growth areas beyond the city centre must be unlocked.

This seminar explores how investments in transport infrastructure can help deliver more housing, regeneration and economic growth. Moreover, it looks at what is needed in terms of masterplans, design, public realm and community involvement to make this a success.

Speakers:

Lisa Taylor, Chief Executive, Future of London
Stephen Willacy, Chief City Architect, Aarhus City Council
Colin Wilson, Strategic Manager, Greater London Authority
Claire Hall, Project Director, Ramboll
Hellen Fisher, Interim Strategic Director of Regeneration, Planning and Development, London Borough of Haringey
Paul McGarry, Head of futureMerton, London Borough of Merton
Chris Lee, Director of Environment & Regeneration, London Borough of Merton
Kay Hughes, Director, Khaa 

Cost: Free of Charge
