The annual London Planning Awards are jointly run by the Mayor and London First, the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI), and London Councils and were created in 2003 to recognise projects, schemes and planning professionals and organisations that have made a vital contribution to the capital in making it a better place to live, work, do business or visit. This year the Mayor gave a special award to Sir Terry Farrell for his unique contribution to planning and development in the capital over the last 10 years.
He has worked on masterplans for large parts of London including Earls Court, Holborn, Nine Elms, Vauxhall, Wood Wharf and Old Oak Common, as well as influencing thinking through voluntary initiatives and “visioning” for The Royal Parks, Buckingham Palace, Marylebone/Euston Road and the Thames Gateway.
The awards were presented at a ceremony at City Hall on Thursday 31st January. The judging panel was made up of representatives from the Mayor, London First, RTPI and London Councils. The Mayor selected the winner of his special award for ‘Planning Excellence’.
