City Plan 2040 – shaping a more humane City

Tuesday, 14 May, 18:30 - 20:30

Temple Bar, Paternoster Square EC4M 7DX

The City Corporation’s local plan enters its final public consultation this summer before submission to the Secretary of State in the autumn. Broadening the City’s appeal and strengthening sustainability are core aims of a new urbanism demanding a design response. What must creators of the Square Mile’s future places and buildings consider?


Join the discussion as Shravan Joshi chairman of the Planning & Transportation Committee and Rob McNichol, Assistant Director of Policy and Strategy, will explain the plan and progress towards final approval. 


Peter Stewart, founder of Townscape Consultancy and Kathryn Firth, Director, Cities Planning and Design Masterplanning and Urban Design, Arup will respond on the implications for architecture and the impact of the new urbanism of the City Plan 2040.


David Ainsworth, Chairman of CO-RE developers, and Jay Ahluwalia, Principal Director of mixed-use developer Dominus, will give their views on the impact of the Plan, and kick off a Q&A session with speakers.


Chaired by Lee Mallett of Urbik and CAF committee member.

Behind the Scenes | Norton Folgate

Thursday, 30 May, 16:30 - 17:45

Norton Folgate, Blossom Street, E1 6PL

Join Paul Monaghan, executive director of AHMM, for an in-depth tour of British Land’s latest City development. 


Three new urban blocks occupy a prominent City Fringe site overlooking Bishopsgate in the Elder Street Conservation area between the City of London and Shoreditch.  While the area is small, there are dramatic changes in character from one street to the next. So, Norton Folgate’s masterplan brings back into use vacant and underused buildings while reconnecting and enhancing the public realm.


Allford Hall Monaghan Morris (AHMM) led the masterplan and given the variegated character of Norton Folgate, collaborated with three different architectural practices to diversify the architectural approach and style - Stanton Williams; Morris + Company; and DSDHA respectively, with East leading the public realm strategy.
