Conference workshop key points:

  • Make the link between sustainable development and economic development (e.g. travel to work); industrial development and loss of land.
  • Challenge idea that town centres are in decline and emphasise the importance of identity, services for/by minorities, infrastructure. (very local and Major Shopping Centres are supported in the London Plan).
  • Undervaluing of existing economic uses which are further under threat via FLEXIBILITY IN PLANNING PROCESSES.
