One of the challenges of London's real-estate led urban development model is to build new urban places with good qualities within the current financial and institutional envelope; architects, planners, practitioners and communities all grapple with this.

This event brings together practitioners, scholars and community members to look at how responses to these challenges are emerging in new urban places across the city and to consider ideas for enabling better urban outcomes. We take as a starting point plans for what is to be potentially one of the largest new urban developments in the UK, the site of one of the first Mayoral Development Corporations at Old Oak Park Royal.
