Wed 26 June: GLA: "Meaning of regeneration on the agenda, as new committee examines its impact on London"

"What does regeneration mean to London?

Can regeneration help drive the capital’s growth, and at the same time reduce deprivation and inequality?

How will the capital provide adequate infrastructure to support its growing population?

"The first meeting of the Assembly’s new Regeneration Committee will debate how London should benefit best from regeneration.

"Members will also quiz experts on how current funding streams – including the Outer London Fund, Mayor’s Regeneration Fund and Growing Places Fund – can deliver results, as well as discussing whether there is potential for greater use of Transport for London (TfL) investment funding and other funding mechanisms such as Tax Increment Financing (TIF) to drive London's regeneration plans forward.

 The following guests will be questioned by the Committee:
  • Sir Edward Lister, Deputy Mayor for Planning
  • David Lunts, Executive Director Housing and Land, GLA
  • Fiona Fletcher-Smith, Executive Director – Development, Enterprise and Environment, GLA
  • Professor Loretta Lees, Department of Geography, King’s College, London
  • Dan Harvey, Chair of Institute of Civil Engineers – London Region and Executive Director, Environment & Transport,
    Ramboll UK Ltd
  • Iain Smith, Public Affairs Manager, London Chamber of Commerce and Industry
"The Committee is also requesting viewpoints from other experts, decision-makers, opinion formers and the public on what regeneration means to London, overcoming problems and how best to use funding so ensure London remains a booming capital city, ready to meet future challenges.

"The meeting will take place on Wednesday, 26 June 2013 from 10am in Chamber at City Hall (The Queen’s Walk, London SE1). Media and members of the public are invited to attend.  The meeting can also be viewed via webcast.
