Sydney Gardens is a Grade 2 listed late 18C pleasure gardens, beloved of Jane Austen and located adjacent to the Holburne Museum. In recent years it has fallen into disrepair, however funding has been secured for a major restoration led by the project manager Keith Rowe FLI. This is a rare opportunity to have a tour of the gardens before the restoration construction takes place in 2020 with the reopening planned for 2021. The visit will be followed by social drinks at the White Hart Pub, Widcombe (just over half a mile along the canal) – with the first drink on us!! Tickets are £7 for LI members or £10 for non-LI member

AND an additional event… The Planning Fringe in Plymouth Wednesday 11th September

This September Plymouth City Council will be hosting the 13th European Biennial of Towns and Town Planners 2019, themed ‘Planning on the Edge’.   The event aims to explore the fringes of planning practice and especially how it engages with wider society. It will attempt to formulate answers to questions such as: · How does planning engage with current and future generations? What can we do to improve this interaction? · How do we see the profession evolve and make it fit for the difficult questions which lie ahead? · What is the role of design within planning? The aim of this fringe event is to provide an independent gateway into the issues our city will face now and, in the future, to actively engage the general public and associated professions with the purpose of the planning profession and to create a greater diversity in the people involved in planning. Attached is the detailed programme, details of all the interesting speakers we have lined up and how to book your place, please share with anyone you think who might be interested in attending. And we hope to see you there!
