Description

Movement Matters | The rise of the high-rise
14 June 2017, 8.00am-9.45am
Blue Fin Venue, 110 Southwark St, SE1 0SU, London

London faces the need to deliver approximately 50,000 new homes per annum for the next 20 years. With a constrained city that needs to respect the desire to protect open space and a greenbelt that prohibits its outward growth, London development will inevitably need to provide homes at greater densities than has historically been the accepted norm.

Sustainable development and appropriate density ranges are influenced by setting in terms of location, existing building form and massing, and public transport accessibility.

This Movement Matters session will provide a forum for an informed discussion around the subject of the density of development in London and how existing and planned transport corridors offer opportunities for delivering greater housing numbers in the outer parts of London.

Our panellists will set the scene in terms of a policy position from Transport for London, an architect’s view on how good design can deliver quality development at increasing densities, and an indication of how developers are reacting to evolving policy and their customers’ view on desirable development.

Speakers
Lucinda Turner, Acting Director of Borough Planning, Transport for London
Paul Eaton, Partner, Allies and Morrison LLP
Marcus Bate, Investment Director, Mount Anvil

A tasty breakfast will be provided!

About Movement Matters

Movement Matters is a series of inspirational seminars, debates and workshops, presented by Steer Davies Gleave exploring how transport shapes and influences places, people and economies.

Drawing on experience from international leaders in transport, government and related-industries, we share insights, and debate opportunities and challenges. Our series of events spans the UK and America, with sessions planned in London, Leeds and Manchester, and in the USA in Los Angeles, Boston and New York.

The UK sessions feature a range of thought-provoking and stimulating topics including the relationship of technology and transport, the challenges of increasing urbanization and the demographic timebomb and its effects to our cities.

Steer Davies Gleave’s Movement Matters series provide a burst of fresh thinking without keeping you out of the office for too long.
