Tue 1 March: London Assembly Regeneration Committee discusses Brent Cross Cricklewood: Arrogance and Corruption by LB of Barnet

Hammerson giving evidence to a
House of Commons Select Committee in 2011:
"There's a danger redevelopment could be 
side-tracked by agitators, and that 
NIMBYS will undermine the process.
it is key to have strong local leadership
in the local authority."

"The Regeneration Committee is tasked with monitoring and reviewing the Mayor’s regeneration functions and spending decisions. This includes oversight of the London Legacy Development Corporation, the Mayor’s powers through the London Plan, which are being used to promote particular areas for regeneration, and the operation of his new Mayoral Development Corporation that covers the Olympic Park.
"You can find out more about the Committee's current work here or view the reports it has published in the investigations section.

"Agendas, minutes and other papers for meetings of this committee may be accessed at the link at the top of the page.  To be added to the distribution list for agendas and minutes, please use the contact information below.

"The Regeneration Committee’s terms of reference are agreed by the London Assembly and can be viewed here.

Intensification areas
in the next London Plan

Date published: 08 February 2016 
(Part of reports document above)

The London Assembly Regeneration Committee has written to the Mayor of London about the effectiveness of the Intensification Area designation on regeneration.
  • The Committee has identified a number of findings and recommendations that the next mayor of London should consider when producing the new London Plan:
  • The impact of Intensification Area designation remains unclear. In the next iteration of the London Plan, the GLA should set out the expected value of giving an area Intensification Area status.
  • Areas selected for intensification must have adequate transport links. A transport impact assessment should be undertaken at the time of designation and made available to local people.
  • In the next London Plan, the GLA should take greater account of when development in Intensification Areas spills over into neighbouring areas. This can have an impact on local services, like GP surgeries and school places and affect an area's local character.
  • Future Intensification Area designation should also pay close attention to protecting and creating employment opportunities.
  • The GLA should create a system to establish development timescales for areas with formal designation in the London Plan and improve communication with developers.
