Spatial politics, place-identity and planning strategies: An examination of Opportunity Areas in the London Plan
This research explores the concept of Opportunity Areas as expressed in the London Plan. We examine their origins, typologies and contexts, and their underlying formal and informal politics, including the tensions between strategic and local objectives. We examine the process and politics of naming particular areas and the debates that have followed, the strategic intentions of the OA’s and the different ways development has been operationalized on the ground. The research is based on analysis of London-wide and local borough policies and plans, interviews with Greater London Authority officials, local boroughs and community representatives, as well as participant observation at the session on Opportunity Areas of the Examination in Public of the draft London Plan.
