Tuesday 30 January 8:00AM - 10:30AM
The need to make Londoners feel safe from changing urban threats requires a judicious balance between reassurance through protective measures and the appearance of welcoming and normal public realm. A fortress like response to managing security through design will be negative for long-term business, tourism and city living – and expensive. So what are the options for shaping a compromise that will sustain defences against potential shocks while minimising the worst effects of prolonged stress?
Please join us for a breakfast briefing event with industry leaders to explore how we can plan and design for a safe and attractive public realm.
Tuesday 30 January 8:15AM - 9:30AM
Is London about to see a return to council led housing development? Many boroughs have or are considering setting up council owned housebuilding companies. With a variety of approaches being pursued and challenges to be addressed, will these companies spark a renaissance in local government building or are they a flash in the pan?
Join us for our first briefing in this new series of events with Kent Taylor, Managing Director of Red Door Ventures, Newham council’s housebuilding company. Kent will set out Red Door’s purpose and vision and take questions from the floor.
