Event description

Description

On the day that Sadiq Khan reveals his new London Plan we mark the 60th anniversary of the death of Sir Patrick Abercrombie, as well as the 50th anniversary of two of his great legacies, Milton Keynes and the Lea Valley Park with a discussion about how Abercrombie’s plans compare to modern city making.

During World War II, Abercrombie was commissioned to create a vision for London’s post-victory future, The Greater London Plan contained most major physical developments that the capital has since seen, including new towns, the M25 orbital motorway, Heathrow and Gatwick airports and the greenbelt of protected countryside which surrounds the city.

Lord Adonis, Chair of the National Infrastructure Commission, will discuss Abercrombie’s legacy with the LSE’s Tony Travers and Prof Michael Hebbert of the Bartlett School of Planning. Further speakers to be announced.

This event is open for advance booking for NLA Members.
