Following the removal of the density matrix in the most recent draft of the London Plan, the Mayor of London stated that: “The appropriate density of a site should be arrived at through a design-led approach, taking account of the site context and infrastructure capacity.”
It is clearly incumbent upon those involved in the production of the built environment – particularly within urban areas – to make the most efficient use of available land, and of supporting infrastructures.
But what does this mean in practice? This panel brings together a range of built environment experts to discuss how high densities can be achieved in our cities, whilst also delivering high-quality places for people to live and work.
