Britain needs a grand masterplan to keep up with population growth

5-May-2015 | By Tim Chapman

London’s population had shrank to just 6.7M people in 1988, but then the city started growing again. The 2011 London Plan expected it to take a further ten years for the city’s population to reach 8.4M – instead growth accelerated and it took just two years, with that level being reached in mid 2013, and currently increasing by 110,000 people every year.
