Last chance to book! RTPI London, in partnership with a coalition of 19 other built environment groups, have assembled an expert panel to discuss what London needs of its next Mayor.

Please note the updated webinar speaker list.  During this webinar, amongst others questions, we will ask:


  • With the revised London Plan finally coming to fruition, what does this mean for the next Mayoral cycle?
  • How do we resolve the tensions between London and central government?
  • How do we join up London and the wider South East?



We invite you to join the discussion about the challenges that lie ahead. From pandemic recovery and Brexit to climate change, what tools do we need as an industry in order to tackle these obstacles and ensure a brighter future for London?
