National Infrastructure — Motion to Take Note (22 Jan 2015)

Lord Rogers of Riverside: My Lords, we live in an urban age. Ten per cent of the world’s population lived in cities 100 years ago; today it is 50%, and in the next 30 years we shall see it at 80%. People are drawn by jobs and the possibility of meeting other people. They are the hearts of our culture and the engines of our wealth. As part of this we need to invest in the infrastructure of cities, particularly in...

National Infrastructure — Motion to Take Note (22 Jan 2015)

Lord Rogers of Riverside: We need to give elected local authorities the powers and resources to plan for new brownfield development, intensification and retrofit so that they can repair the tears in the urban fabric and build the houses that we need, building on brownfield land before green. With the right infrastructure investment, and the power taken back by local authorities, we will be able to build new towns in...

Planning — Debate (13 Oct 2011)

Lord Rogers of Riverside: My Lords, I declare an interest in Rogers Stirk Harbour and Partners and as a director of the River Café, Hammersmith. I join in congratulating my noble friend Lord Rooker on introducing this timely debate. I will discuss the effect that this national planning policy framework is likely to have on our cities and our countryside, which are two sides of the same coin. In fact, cities need to...

I am delighted to hear the support that design has had today. There is...

Architecture (27 Mar 2008)

Lord Rogers of Riverside: My Lords, I refer your Lordships to my various interests, all of which are listed in the Register of Lords' Interests. It is almost four years since I spoke in your Lordships' House on architecture and I congratulate my noble friend Lord Howarth on securing this debate. He has excellent timing, as the Planning Bill will be coming before your Lordships in a few weeks. I am impressed, as I...

Planning and Compulsory Purchase Bill (25 Mar 2004)

Lord Rogers of Riverside: My Lords, I add my wholehearted support to the Government for Amendment No. 30. Noble Lords will remember that I first raised the subject of design statements at Second Reading on 6 January. I am grateful to the noble Lord, Lord Lucas, my noble friend Lady Blackstone, and the noble Baroness, Lady Maddock, for their support for amendments in our names calling for applications for planning...

Planning and Compulsory Purchase Bill (25 Mar 2004)

Lord Rogers of Riverside: My Lords, in moving Amendment No. 22 and speaking to Amendment No. 23, I rise to add my wholehearted support for the Government in seeking to strengthen the sustainability duties on planners in Clause 39. Throughout the passage of the Bill, the Minister has listened to arguments put forward by myself and other noble Lords that design policy and sustainable development must go hand in hand....

Planning and Compulsory Purchase Bill (25 Mar 2004)

Lord Rogers of Riverside: My Lords, I thank my noble friend the Minister for his response. I can understand the Government's reluctance to reopen Clause 39. It is very delicately worded and has been the subject of much discussion in your Lordships' House. However, we may be missing an important opportunity to make the vital connection between sustainable development and design quality absolutely clear on the face of...

Planning and Compulsory Purchase Bill (22 Jan 2004)

Lord Rogers of Riverside: I was delighted to hear all the things that the Minister said. In fact, I find very little with which to argue. I was also pleased to hear the general support of the Committee. It is imperative that we continue with the policy specifically mentioned by the Minister of John Gummer's concept of no out-of-town retail. It is consistent with the concept of using brownfield first. We have to be...

Planning and Compulsory Purchase Bill (22 Jan 2004)

Lord Rogers of Riverside: In moving the amendment, I would also like to speak to Amendments Nos. 83, 113, 114, 116 and 117B. I declare an interest as chair of Richard Rogers Architects. As I said at Second Reading, the Bill, although long on structure, is short on aspiration. Our planning system lacks a sense of purpose and has therefore failed us in many ways. The Bill represents an ideal opportunity to create a new...

Lord Rogers of Riverside: My Lords, I declare an interest as chairman of Richard Rogers Architects, chief adviser to the Mayor of London on architecture and urbanism, and as an adviser to the Mayor of Barcelona. I am also chairman of the National Tenants Resource Centre. I thank my noble friend Lord Rooker for outlining the Bill. Although I broadly agree with the comments made today, I also have considerable sympathy...

Urban Regeneration (29 May 2002)

Lord Rogers of Riverside: My Lords, I declare an interest as chairman of Richard Rogers Architects, as chief adviser to the Mayor of London on architecture and urbanism, and also as adviser to the Mayor of Barcelona.

I am also grateful for the wise words of the noble Lord, Lord Brooke, and the...
