In this edition we turn to cities. With Ben Rogers, Director of the Centre for London, we explore major issues arising from the pandemic: the immediate downturn; suppressed demand; the role of innovators and the young. We turn to planning reform, zoning, design codes and participation by communities. We look at planning levers beyond regulation - how tax, including local taxes could be a tool to promote or disincentivise different uses and developments.

There is a lot in it! - and more to be found here: https://www.centreforlondon.org
