Better engagement, better homes: public involvement in planning


This event, hosted by UK think tank the Centre for London will discuss what we can do to get more Londoners involved in the decisions that matter for our city.

Engaging Londoners in the planning process improves the quality of developments, boosts wellbeing and motivation and helps to deliver more housing faster.

As London gears up for the mayoral election, all the candidates agree that we need more homes for Londoners. We will only get the quantity and quality of development that our city needs if we engage citizens throughout the planning process.

Centre for London, in partnership with ftwork, is publishing a manifesto on public involvement in planning. This lays out what the next elected Mayor can do to strengthen public engagement in our planning system and get communities involved in new, much needed developments.

Join Centre for London and our guest speakers to talk about why involvement in planning matters, hear from people who are already making a difference, and discuss what we can do to get more Londoners involved in the decisions that matter for our city.

We are delighted to be working in collaboration with Collective Community Action on this manifesto.

Chair: Claire Harding, Research Director, Centre for London

Richard Brown, Acting Director, Centre for London

Jessica Cargill Thompson, Public Practice Associate / Community Engagement Officer, Waltham Forest Council
