NLA’s latest report, ‘Industrial & Logistics: Can London Deliver?’, provides an in-depth look at London’s vital Industrial & Logistics sector, featuring exclusive viewpoints from key organisations in the industry – including the Greater London Authority, Aukett Swanke, Prologis UK, and Turley. The report draws on research, interviews, and roundtable discussions with sector leaders, making recommendations of practical and realistic solutions for the future of London’s Industrial & Logistics sector.

Going beyond London, the report delves into how other cities around the world from New York to Tokyo have focussed on balancing goods movement and neighbourhood needs to create more liveable communities, and an extensive project showcase highlights the innovation and ambition of a sector that keeps London running.


… About 50 per cent of industrial land in central London had disappeared since 2001, and vacancy rates for industrial spaces were nearing unsustainable levels. Although the exhibition took place some time before COVID, even then it was obvious that greater demand for online retailing meant that people expected purchases to be delivered in ever shorter timescales, and so good locations with easy access to central London were increasingly sought after.

We recommended expanding exemptions to permitted development rights to protect London’s designated industrial and commercial land and spaces as a priority.
