Keep it London - Putting Heritage at the Heart of London's Future

Our new report says heritage should be at the core of planning and recognised as vital for future growth. See what else we recommend for London and have your say.

The Mayor of London is currently reviewing the London Plan, a strategic, city-wide plan that will shape the capital and its historic environment over the next 20 years.

To inform our recommendations for the London Plan, Historic England commissioned the independent strategic reports listed below. Findings from all three reports were presented to an expert panel representing planning, heritage and property development and used as a basis to debate the strategic issues for the management of the historic environment in London. Read our recommendations in Keep it London - Putting heritage at the heart of London's future.

Independent reports considered by the panel

The reports are technical but would interest everyone who wants to see the continued conservation and celebration of London's heritage.

Have your say on the findings - email IAmLondon@HistoricEngland.org.uk

Other studies are being considered to further reinforce our understanding of the issues for London's heritage in this time of unprecedented change.
