This year’s London Mayoral Election takes place at a time of disruption.
The Covid19 crisis has transformed the usual patterns of life and work, and many commentators anticipate a lasting impact on workplaces and commuting patterns.
Having left the European Union, it will be some time before the consequences of Brexit become known.
The context in which this Election takes place is therefore markedly different to that of the 2016 Mayoral Election. The assumptions underlying previous transport, housing and planning policies may no longer hold.
As the candidates put forward policies in the face of an uncertain future, Planning Futures is hosting a Mayoral Hustings dedicated to the built environment.
We are delighted to announce that we will be joined by representatives from each of the leading campaigns for a policy focused discussion.
We are also pleased to confirm that Simon Ricketts, of Town Legal, will chair this event.
