This year’s CPD Day aims to stimulate discussion around enhancing the multifunctionality of landscapes from the broad, regional scale down to the local level, focusing on resilience, health and wellbeing. At a strategic level, we will look at how planning for green infrastructure across the south-west region can provide quality of life and natural capital benefits, as well as catchment adaptation to help with flood resilience and collaborative measures to encourage pollinators. On a city-wide scale, we will look at planning for cycle-friendly infrastructure, optimising the urban environment to create healthy places, how this translates through public art and how the community can be involved on a local level.
The day will include speakers from Natural England, the West of England Partnership and Wessex Water discussing resilience and adaptation. Speakers from Tisdall Associates and Gingko Projects will consider health and wellbeing, with case studies from Dutch firm Witteveen+Bos Uk Ltd,
Incredible Edible Bristol and, winner of the Landscape Institute’s 2016 Presidents Award, TACP Landcape Architects.
To encourage and inform good practice, using successful schemes and award winning projects to inform future strategies. We also hope that attendees will use this as an opportunity to network and share good practice.
Attendees are welcome from the public, private and voluntary sectors and a range of disciplines including planning, transport, urban design, arboriculture, ecology as well as landscape architecture.
All day event from 10.30am to 5.30pm including AGM and an address from the Landscape Institute’s new CEO Dan Cook about the vision for the Institute’s future.
