The London Plan

November 19, 2010

I note we got a mention in Mike Edwards’  blog on the London Plan. He states that it would have been helpful to have the input of the space syntax fraternity, Alain Chiaradia and ourselves in the discussion. I agree. The difficulty of getting academic outputs into the heads of planners and decision makers is a perennial problem. The impression I get is that it is partly a question of time for academic findings to become part of the accepted knowledge. Notably our High Streets paper is starting to have impact on thinking about the importance of smaller centres currently broadly overlooked by the plan – albeit filtered through the work of academic colleagues acting as consultants (see earlier blog on this subject).
