In this conference, NLA will be discussing the latest tall buildings’ figures published in the NLA Annual London Tall Buildings Survey 2019.

Which areas of London are seeing major changes due to tall buildings? What is the impact on local neighbourhoods and how do the planning system cope with the challenges that tall buildings bring? How do we ensure these are of the highest quality of design and do not harm London’s rich historic heritage?

With the majority of tall buildings in the pipeline being residential, what role do tall buildings play in accommodating an increasing population? What do they deliver in terms of affordable housing? Are they the best way to deliver density? Are they more expensive to build and maintain?

As Tall Buildings programme champion and research partner to New London Architecture, GL Hearn's team of tall buildings specialists, led by Stuart Baillie, Head of Planning (London and South East), worked with the NLA on the survey.

Stuart will part of the panel of experts discussing the future of London's skyline. Joining Stuart will be:

  • Peter Murray, Chairman, New London Architecture (Chair)
  • Kath Scanlon, Deputy Director, LSE London
  • Emily Gee, London Planning Director, Historic England
  • Steve Watts, Partner, Alinea Consulting
  • John Bushell, Principal, KPF
  • Javier Quintana, Chairman, CTBUH UK, Director, IDOM UK
