April Update â€“ Crossrail, anyone?
Hello all -
Time has raced by as we prepare for the April 23rd launch of our Crossrail as Catalyst report. Kudos to Jennifer and Alexei for a massive effort on interviews, research and report prep; if we survive the next week, weâ€™ll all be at the spa (or sailing by Woodberry Down â€“ see below).
We did surface long enough to hold our inaugural FutureTalk, a lively steering group debate on the â€˜Grow up or Grow out?â€™ aspect of infrastructure planning that weâ€™ll offer as a public event June 11th at City Hall. Keep an eye on our Events page for details on that and a June 17th field trip/seminar combo with a Dutch exchange group.
We've also had some board changes following Treasurer Neil Rousell's retirement from LB Enfield: welcome back to Stephen McDonald, Director of Place at LB Barnet and former FoL chair, and thanks to Ben Denton, Westminster Strategic Director for Housing, Regeneration and Property, whoâ€™s kindly stepped up as treasurer.
Hope you can join us for some of the interesting events below, and watch for the Crossrail as Catalyst downloadable report and exec summary, available April 23rd.
Thanks and see you out there!
