Part of the NLA Conservation series in July
Tuesday 28 July, 8.15 am to 1.15pm

Building 'In context' is right at the heart of Boris Johnson's proposals for the revised London Plan. Proposed amendments to the London View Management Framework will enlarge viewing corridors and protected silhouettes. Design that is responsive to the character of our neighbourhoods lies at the heart of the Mayor's calls for a new London vernacular. At the same time the debate over Chelsea Barracks has raised fundamental questions about the planning process and what constitutes 'appropriate' development.

This half-day NLA conference will bring together the broad spectrum of players who influence and are impacted by development decisions in London to examine the challenges and opportunities presented by the need to conserve the character of London, while providing accommodation necessary for business and economic growth. Join us to discover latest Mayoral and English Heritage policies, hear from the clients, planners and practitioners attempting to strike the right balance and debate the implications for development in London.

Confirmed speakers include:

Hank Dittmar, Chief Executive, The Prince's Foundation for the Built Environment
Rosemarie MacQueen, Director of Planning and City Development, Westminster City Council
Simon Silver, Head of Development, Derwent London
