Organised by London First, in conjunction with the mayor of London, the Royal Town Planning Institute and umbrella body London Councils, the London Planning Awards are held annually to celebrate the contribution of planners and planning to the capital’s economic success.
Those making the shortlist include Highbury Gardens, the former home of Arsenal FC and now a housing development; and Bow Cross estate, an estate regeneration scheme which saw the refurbishment of three tower blocks and construction of more than 680 homes.
The project featured in Planning’s Top 100 Regeneration Projects 2013.
Both schemes are in contention for the Best Built Project Five Years On award.
Elsewhere, John Anderson, chairman of housebuilder Berkeley Homes East Thames and John Turner, town planning director at Ballymore Group have been nominated for London Planning & Development Person of the Year.
