PART 1: Councillor CPD 1 – Landscape and green infrastructure

Councillor CPD 1: Landscape and green infrastructure

Drawing on the characteristics of well-designed places, as outlined in the recently published National Design Guide, this two-part online Councillor CPD learning event will explore how we evaluate the design quality of major applications in relation to Landscape and green infrastructure.

We will examine the design quality of major applications in relation to the following areas:

  • Context – development borrowing from and enhancing its surroundings
  • Nature – enhanced and optimised through development
  • Public spaces – safe, social and inclusive spaces for all

Delivered by:

Laura Lewis-Davies, Learning Manager, Design South East
Dr Gillian Horn, Architect and Researcher

The event will include:

  • A live one-hour introductory webinar
  • Electronic resources and suggested further reading
  • A follow up live one-hour online discussion

Key details:

  • Date: Tuesday 19 May 2020
  • Time: 6pm-7pm (login from 5:45pm for a 6pm start)
  • Location: Online – We will be using Zoom as the online conferencing platform
