Delivering Higher Density
05.07.2017 (Full Day)
We will discuss how we use the London Plan density matrix in our work as well as giving us a practical understanding of how we actually measure density, what this means for neighbourhoods and if we can deliver good growth by good design. Finally, to get us thinking what the future may hold with defining, measuring and implementing density standards, we will explore research undertaken for the London Plan by the London School of Economics.
- How to Use the Density Matrix for SHLAAs – Peter Neckelmann, Arup
- How can we Deliver Good Growth by Design? Alex Ely, Mae
- How do we Actually Measure Density? Julia Park, Levitt Bernstein
- Density: Defining, measuring & implementing standards – Prof. Ian Gordon, LSE
This event will look at priorities for central London as set out in the new Mayor’s Transport Strategy, as well as the needs of different travel modes and how these can be considered together, how long-term, large-scale change is being managed in some parts of central London and how individual projects can act as a catalyst for new ways of thinking about and using areas.
