Effective Cross-Border Regional Planning? London and the Rest of the South EastMartin Simmons


Proposition

Proposition

Present organisation of regional planning inhibits effective planning for the wider functional metropolitan region

The London boundary is a planning barrier…


Regional planning administration post 2000 after serplan and rpg 9

Regional Planning Administration post-2000 (after SERPLAN and RPG 9)

  • 3 regions

  • Mayor of London: prepares and after EiP publishes SDS > London Plan 2004

  • East of England & South East Regional Assemblies: 2004 PCP Act - prepare draft RSSs, EiP, Government modifies and publishes – 2006?


Key inter regional functional metropolitan region issues

Key Inter-Regional/Functional Metropolitan Region Issues

  • Population: extent of movement out of London and housing demand

  • Labour Market: central London’s reach; cross-border commuting in and out

  • Location of economic development: central London; locations beyond M25

  • London Plan and SCP Growth Area Spatial Strategies: key corridors

  • Polycentricity: ‘hub’ growth – competing or complementarity?

  • Transport: road use/congestion; rail route utilisation strategies/ Mayoral powers

  • Environment: green belt; waste/recycling, energy.


Thames gateway

Thames Gateway

  • sui generis - established regeneration area straddling the 3 regions

  • Government-led since 1995 (RPG 9a) > Sustainable Communities Plan Growth Area

  • Inter-Regional Forum produces 2004 joint planning statement


London plan 2004 cross border intentions

London Plan 2004 Cross-border intentions

  • ‘Centre of a metropolitan region’: inter-regional collaboration acknowledged

  • Sub-regional scale: development frameworks (SRDFs) to involve adjoining regions

    Situation/evidence to date:

  • Inter-Regional Forum (5 reps. each) meets 3 times/year; agrees joint research

  • Emerging SRDFs: intent there, but no real collaboration evident

East of england draft rss dec 04 current consultation

East of England draft RSS (Dec 04 current consultation)

  • Core strategy refers to London influence, but no policy interaction

  • Sub-regional strategies ignore adjacent parts of London, particularly evident in ‘Stansted/M11’ part of London-Stansted-Cambridge SCP Growth Area

  • Opportunity to rectify at EiP this autumn


South east draft rss 1 2 jan 05 current pre submission consultation

South East draft RSS (1 / 2)(Jan 05 current pre-submission consultation)

Core Strategy

  • Focus development on TG and other eastern areas

  • Housing not matching employment in the west

    Issues Arising

  • Employment projections need London dimension

  • Labour market imbalances in TG/east

  • Transport focus on Hubs not carried through

  • Town centres policy needs coherence (cf. polycentricity)

  • Implications/solutions sought within own region

    Sub-Regional Strategies

  • Definitional problems: London Fringe; Gatwick Area; W Corridor

  • London Fringe: lack of relationship with South London

  • Dominant centres (Croydon, Kingston) ignored

  • Gatwick Area; excludes Redhill hub and Croydon corridor

  • Further work envisaged: ?London dimension? SRDF links?


South east draft rss 2 2

South East draft RSS (2 / 2)

Western Corridor / Western Wedge

Draft Sub-Regional Strategy

  • Key Issue – more jobs than workforce

    Can economic buoyancy be sustained

  • Fails to answer: against faster housing

    Joint 2002 study (Arup) promotes Western Wedge concept

  • London Plan endorses

  • SEERA strategy ignores (so far?)

    Need for further work acknowledged

  • But purpose not indicated

  • Should it become a ‘Sustainable Communities Plan Growth area’

  • Or should the implications of restraint be faced up to?

    Advantages of an integrated Western Wedge sub-region

  • Nb. Heathrow; Crossrail; Centres;

  • Development and labour capacity…

  • Chance to improve: West London SRDF; South East EiP

  • Or danger of serious regional planning failure

Conclusions

  • As of Mar 05, evidence largely confirms starting proposition

  • London Plan intentions there, but no real delivery yet

  • Key tests later this year: London SRDFs; East of England EiP; South East submitted RSS

  • Is the London Mayor able to lead on effective collaboration?

  • Or will Government need to act, extending the Growth Area strategy?

  • Are SEERA and EERA sustainable as Regional Planning Bodies?
