Have you ever wondered how planners can support London's future position as a global economic powerhouse? Or, how to accommodate a growing and diverse population, particularly in light of current shortages in housing and infrastructure?  What are your views on the Great Green Belt Debate - does the green belt hold the answer to London's housing crisis? And how can we ensure the city remains resilient to future challenges such as climate change and energy supply?
