pil100-january-2017-print-edPlanning in London, the journal of the London Planning and Development Forum, has reached its 100th edition. First published in 1992, it has grappled with the arguments, processes and nuances of the capital’s planning system for a quarter of a century, and still provides an interesting read for the professional and layman alike.

The current issue, which you can read online at this link, contains pieces by Nicholas Falk of URBED (the co author of the London Society’s recent white paper on west London), Simon Moody from the Environment Agency, and our very own Peter Murray.
