Explore the future role of Londons outer town centres in accommodating London’s significant population growth in NLA’s latest Insight Study.

How could policy and development help support Londoners to live and work across a multi-centred city?

London’s towns are the essential fabric of its everyday life, acting as focal points for local communities and giving places distinctive identities. However, the capital is facing unprecedented change as its population is expected to grow massively to over 11 million by 2050, meaning the city needs to provide a minimum of 50,000 new homes and an additional 46,000 jobs per year. In his ‘A City for All Londoners’ manifesto, Mayor Sadiq Khan has argued that development to accommodate this huge shift should be ‘good growth’, but what does that mean as we try to safeguard quality of life while also providing thousands of new homes and jobs for all Londoners, as well as school places, good transport connections, and essential access to high-quality green space, leisure, amenities, and community facilities and services?
