The latest edition of Planning in London magazine is now published and can be read below.

Planning in London is produced by the London Planning and Development Forum (LPDF). The LPDF was formed in 1980 following an all-party inquiry into the development control system. It selects topics to debate at its quarterly meetings and these views are reported to constituent bodies. It is a sounding board for the development of planning policy in the capital.
