Executive summary

  1. An evidence base for Further Alterations to the London Plan
  2. Practitioner good practice guidance on design and delivery of high density housing and flexible work space in and around town centres.
  3. Establish criteria for future regeneration drawing on experience of the Outer London Fund (OLF) investment programme.
