What do we need from the next Mayor of London?

We invite you to join the discussion about pandemic recovery, Brexit, climate change, and the tools we need as an industry in order to tackle these obstacles and ensure a brighter future for London.

We invite you to join the discussion about pandemic recovery, Brexit, climate change, and the tools we need as an industry in order to tackle these obstacles and ensure a brighter future for London.

This event is in collaboration with the Royal Town Planning Institute, London Property Alliance, London First, RIBA London, British Property Federation, The Chartered Institute of Building, Landscape Institute, Centre for London, Urban Design Group, The London Society, British Council for Offices, New West End Company, Heart of London, Federation of Master Builders, Home Builders Federation, National Residential Landlords Association, Urban Design London, Place Alliance, and Academy of Urbanism.

As a collective representing over 100,000 individuals working across the built environment, this coalition of professional bodies has assembled an expert panel to discuss what London needs of its next Mayor.

With the revised London Plan nearing completion, what does this mean for the next mayoral cycle? How do we resolve tensions between London and central government? How do we join up London and the wider South East?

During this event, industry leaders will present their questions for the Mayor with discussion around how we implement our proposals. Following the event a letter will be drafted on behalf of this coalition and sent to the Mayor of London in preparation for the 2021 elections.
