Community leaders at Logan, south of Brisbane, have heard they can learn a lot about how their community can rebuild from the 2011 London riots.

About 300 people are attending a summit in Logan today to help resolve racial tension and violence in the city.

It has been hearing from a former chief executive officer of a British Council that dealt with the aftermath of London's riots.

Haringay council former CEO Kevin Crompton says one of the hardest issues to tackle is that of a negative perception of the area in the wake of racial unrest.

"Take Logan and your headlines recently are not what you've wanted as a city are they?" he said.

"If you were a prospective land developer or business person thinking where to locate your business, certainly after the riots if you'd have Tottenham on the list certainly wouldn't have it on the list any more.

"That image think is really important in the UK and I suspect it is here."
