120 CPA and WPA members attended the launch event for London Property Alliance’s new report ‘Good Growth for Central London: analysis of the CAZ+ from 2020 to 2041.’

The research examines the key risks and opportunities facing London’s Central Activities Zone and Northern Isle of Dogs (CAZ+), and whether it can deliver on and help meet its wider good growth obligations. It provides a snapshot of the performance of the CAZ+, which currently supports 1.9mil jobs (31% of all jobs in London); £211bn in economic activity (10% of the UK’s output); and £4.6bn in business rates.

A key finding of the study is that if the public and private sectors work together to achieve a ‘good growth scenario’, Arup finds that it could deliver almost 400,000 new jobs and over 43,000 additional homes in Central London, whilst generating almost £100bn for the national economy by 2041.

Alexander Jan (author of the report and Chief Economist at Arup) delivered a presentation outlining the report’s key findings, prior to a panel discussion of industry and political leaders involving:

  • Professor Tony Travers (Director at LSE London) – moderator
  • Olivia Harris (WPA Chair / Chief Executive of Dolphin Living)
  • Cllr Peter John OBE (Chair of London Councils / Leader of Southwark Council)
  • Alastair Moss (Chair of the Planning & Transportation Committee at City of London Corporation)
  • Dan Scanlon (CPA Vice President / Senior Vice President (Developments) at Brookfield Properties)

 

The research was produced by Arup, and supported by Almacantar, Derwent London, Great Portland Estates, Grosvenor, Landsec and New West End Company.
