London Planning News
Welcome to London Planning, a new service provided by Westminster Property Association in partnership with Belgrave Communications.
London Planning will bring together the major stories from 11 central London boroughs; Camden, City of London, City of Westminster, Hackney, Hammersmith & Fulham, Islington, Lambeth, the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea, Southwark, Tower Hamlets and Wandsworth. The content hosted here will not be an exhaustive list, rather a carefully selected snapshot of the major planning news from London each week.
We hope you will find this a useful and informative tool, and please do get in touch with a member of the WPA team if you have any feedback or feel that you would like to be involved.
Westminster Property Association (WPA) is a membership organisation comprising companies which own or develop our built environment in not just the City of Westminster, but throughout London and beyond. Our members, over 200 in number, include all the landed estates, major developers, investors and designers of Westminster’s built environment.
The WPA exists to encourage the optimum legislative, social, and economic conditions for development in the heart of the capital, ensuring that Westminster retains its position as the engine room of the UK’s economy, and the centre of UK government, retail, tourism and culture. Our vibrant programme of events enables members to keep up-to-date with important research and planning developments, and also experience first-hand some of the best new schemes in the capital.
With close to 200 members the City Property Association (CPA) represents a significant commercial property portfolio. We bring together property owners, developers, investors and professional advisors to inform policy and drive the economic prosperity of the City. We promote the interests of our members, representing their views to the City of London policy makers along with key London bodies, the Mayor’s Office and the media.
Our principal focus continues to be planning and economic development policy in the City and we maintain excellent working relationships with members and officers in the City of London Corporation. We also take an active interest across other various government departments as well as national and regional organisations that impact upon the built environment in Central London.
Each year the Association delivers a range of insight seminars, showcase receptions and building visits. These events bring together our membership to forge new business partnerships and are an opportunity to hear directly from senior politicians and policy makers.
Belgrave provides a complete communications solution to the property industry. We offer consultancy across political and community engagement, traditional Public Relations and integrated digital solutions.
Why Belgrave? The increasingly fractured media landscape combined with changing political legislation, has meant that there are more hoops to jump through than ever. In order to get results, experience and skills are required across multiple disciplines, but gaining all these from one provider can be extremely difficult. We deliver that for our clients.
We are currently working on a number of community engagement projects in London and East Anglia. Our PR service is getting regular national and trade magazine coverage. With extensive political, media and property market knowledge, Belgrave is the natural choice.
