NextGen members are invited to join us at this evening seminar, organised by the WPA NextGen Committee, exploring the exciting changes that are happening with urban planning. Planning has traditionally been a profession slow to embrace technology, innovation and change despite it being a vital service in London’s pursuit to build more homes, provide new workspaces and deliver infrastructure. However, new platforms embracing PlanTech, Virtual Reality and 3D modelling could transform the sector.

The evening reception will not only give members the chance to experience first-hand this prominent City development but, hosted a week after Britain’s scheduled departure from the EU, will be an opportunity to hear directly those in key positions of power about the next steps for the City of London post-Brexit, and how the area can continue to prosper.

This iconic street and surrounding area is internationally renowned for its historic newspaper links and as a centre for the legal profession. But a fading urban fabric and loss of identity has seen it all fall behind. With the City Corporation’s new £240m Eric Parry designs plans for a new police and courts complex, WeWork’s takeover of the old Goldman Sachs London HQ at Peterborough Court, and emerging plans for a Fleet St BID to help drive the area’s regeneration, Fleet Street is set to undergo a major transformation.
