The mayoral team has just published the draft London Plan, which aims to promote higher density development and remove maximum density restrictions.

Murray will be discussing how the mayor intends to pursue design-led densification through the plan.

Delegates at the event, which is organised by Planning, will also:

- Hear how planning authorities can set design quality requirements for high density homes, and how applicants can show that they are meeting them, explained by Greater London Authority strategic planning manager Colin Wilson, who has been seconded to Southwark Council to head up its team delivering the regeneration of the Old Kent Road

- Learn how high density schemes can provide family homes and cater for people with a wide range of needs while still ensuring that they remain deliverable, explained by Alice Lester, head of planning, transport and licensing at Brent Council.
