UK: Growing London
Source: Mayor's Design Advisory Group (UK)
From A Great City’s Future:
By 2030 one and a half million people – almost as many as currently live in Birmingham – will be added to the 8.5 million living here in London. Accommodating that growth in a way that allows the city and its people to thrive and prosper will be extraordinarily challenging. Only if we think long term and plan ahead will we make a success of it.
Parliament has placed the Mayor of London squarely at the heart of getting this right, through the Mayor’s statutory strategic responsibilities for the city’s spatial development and its transport and environmental planning. With a new Mayor due to be elected in May 2016 and a new London Plan and other strategies to be produced, this is the moment to build on the work of the past and to shape this great city for its future...
This publication, Growing London, goes to the heart of the question: what London will look and feel like as it grows physically to accommodate a population of ten million and rising.
