The Society is for all those who love London. It was founded in 1912 by a group of eminent Londoners concerned about the lack of planning in the capital. Luminaries such as Sir Edwin Lutyens, Raymond Unwin, Aston Webb, Beresford Pite, Frank Brangwyn brought people together to debate key issues about the future of the capital - housing, roads, railways, the channel tunnel, bridges and even airports - all high on the agenda today.
We arrange events and visits to a variety of places, buildings and institutions, some not generally open to the public, organise debates and lectures, including the annual Sir Banister Fletcher Lecture, addressed by distinguished speakers. The Society also sponsors the All Party Parliamentary Group on London Planning and Built Environment.
