Centre for London launch Industrial Land Commission

Industrial sites have many uses, from manufacturing and construction, to waste and freight consolidation, film studios, and breweries. As London has grown, demands on space including industrial land have intensified. London’s boroughs face difficult decisions between protecting jobs and businesses that service the city, and meeting the need for more homes.

The Centre for London are convening an independent, expert-led commission to provide fresh thinking on the future of London’s industrial land.
