Islington is one of the most vibrant and dynamic parts of London and is experiencing significant growth in housing and employment. The council has adopted progressive planning policies to ensure that all our communities benefit from this growth whilst protecting and enhancing the borough’s unique character. Enhancing the built environment through high quality design is therefore an important Council objective.

The Commission’s origins come from a pioneering era of invention and a thirst for knowledge intended to bring wide social and economic benefits. It gives us our mission to bring the power of science and the arts to bear on productive industry. Over time such industry brings with it intense urbanisation and social change which continues to this day as more people now live in cities than in rural communities. Agriculture too has been increasingly mechanised to provide us with ample comparatively inexpensive food. The natural world and many of its people were seen as a resource.
