Consulting you on public consultations

29 February 2016

This meeting took place on 1 March 2016. Read the transcript here.

Public engagement and support is crucial to the success of regeneration projects.

Consultations can help identify what local people want from a new development.

So how do local authorities and developers go about this? What methods do they use? Are they successful? And is there a winning formula?

The London Assembly Regeneration Committee will tomorrow discuss the role that public consultation plays on major regeneration projects. The meeting will use the £4.5 billion Brent Cross Cricklewood project as a case study and will examine how successful the consultation process was there.

The Committee will also look at the influence consultation has on new infrastructure needs, such as schools and GP surgeries.

The following guests will be questioned:

  • Debbie Jackson, Assistant Director - Regeneration, Greater London Authority (GLA)
  • Pauline McKinnell, Secretary, Cricklewood Community Forum
  • Pat Turnbull, Representative, Just Space
  • Ciron Edwards, Associate Director, Soundings
  • Cath Shaw, Commissioning Director, Growth & Development, London Borough of Barnet

The meeting will take place on Tuesday, 1 March at 10:00am in Committee Room 5 at City Hall (The Queen’s Walk, London SE1).

Media and members of the public are invited to attend. The meeting can also be viewed via webcast.
