Creating a liveable city for a changing population
Creating a liveable city for a changing population

  • Looking at:

    • Housing the changing population;

    • Balancing resources spent on houses with others e.g. transport, open space;

    • Distributing and working together across London – at different scales.


Territory london
Territory: London

  • Capital of England and United Kingdom

  • Home of 12.5% of UK Population on 0.6% of land area:

    • 7.75 million live in 3.3 million households;

    • 4,900 persons per square kilometre


Territory london1
Territory: London

  • Distinct areas:


London planning context
London Planning Context

  • National Government – Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG)

  • Greater London Authority – Regional – elected Mayor;

  • 32 London Boroughs - elected Members;

  • Civil Servants / Planning Officers work at both


Issues
Issues

  • Growing Population;

  • Distribution of Population;

  • Changing Population;

  • HOW TO HOUSE EVERYONE


Growing population
Growing Population

  • Grown every year since 1988;

  • 2009 – 7.75 million:

    • 3.06 Inner London

    • 4.67 million outer London



Changing population
Changing Population

  • Younger than anywhere else in the UK;

  • Over 65 year olds:

    • will increase by 34% to reach 1.17 million by 2031;

  • 10% disability and impairment;

  • More households – especially one person;

  • Poverty and disadvantage.


Housing delivery challenges

Housing delivery challenges

These three key issues impact on each other in a multitude of ways (e.g. a failure to deliver the required quantum can result in decreased affordability or a drive for affordability might result in lower quality)

3 key Issues:

Quantum – building enough housing for a growing population

Affordability – building housing that is within the reach of all

Quality – building housing that allows its occupiers a good quality of life

  • Other pressures:

  • Competing land uses

  • Finance

  • Infrastructure/transport funding requirements

  • Sustainability

  • Policy


Objectives to explore
Objectives to Explore

  • What implications do planning policy interventions and development economics have for emerging patterns of (residential) development in London?

  • How can the 3 key issues be balanced to achieve adequate housing for Londoners?

  • Should/can one of these issues be prioritised over the other two? What role can the built environment professions play in negotiation and mediation?

  • How is the market responding to the challenges of housing delivery? Is regularisation necessary in helping to solve these problems?

  • How have policy-makers responded to these challenges?

  • What more can be done? Are there possible changes outside of spatial planning? Are there any interventions that can take place outside of London’s administrative boundaries?

  • What are the impacts of the challenges faced in London(’s housing market) on its ability achieve inclusive and sustainable growth?
