High Street London London

High Street London London

Recognising that London’s high streets play a vital role across the capital, but are neglected and poorly-understood, Design for London (DfL) and the London Development Agency (LDA) commissioned Gort Scott and UCL to carry out a research study to assist in the development of their emerging Agenda for London’s high streets.

2009–2010
Client: London Development Agency
Project Status: Completed

This urban design research project aimed to develop a better understanding and insight into the form and use of London’s high streets, from a very local to a city-wide scale, thereby identifying the role of high streets in supporting London’s sustainable growth and development.

The project also included a detailed case study and series of proposals for the A118 in Redbridge, the Crossrail Corridor.

The high streets agenda, now spearheaded by the London Mayor’s organisations, the General London Authority (GLA) and Design for London (DfL), has evolved to influence the Outer London Fund and Regeneration Fund, both specifically aimed at stimulating the regeneration of London’s high streets and town centres.
