Against a background of discussions of suburban decline in Outer London, some areas have seen ‘upscaling’, where higher socio-economic groups are replacing lower ones.
Speakers Alan Mace (LSE) and Antoine Paccoud (LSE Visiting Fellow) will ask if this a form of ‘gentrification’ and what is causing it to happen. Are there physical characteristics that make some parts of Outer London more attractive to upscalers, and are changes of tenure playing a role? Mace and Paccoud will examine the data to try to give a better understanding of the drivers of change in Outer London, and what this might mean for growth in the city.
