Abercrombie + 70 - Organised by the NLA and RTPI London, sponsored by AECOM

NLA, The Building Centre, 26 Store Street WC1E 7BT

Sir Patrick Abercrombie's Greater London Plan was published 70 years ago this year. At this celebration organised by the NLA and RTPI London a panel of eminent planners will discuss: what would Abercrombie do today?

The Plan was designed to set out a grand vision for London's development, espousing the benefits of a planned city and dealing with its growing population. At a time when London is predicted to grow by over a million people in the next decade, our speakers will review the lessons of Abercrombie's approach and how they influence the long-term vision for London's future.
