HOW CAN WE MAKE OUR NEIGHBOURHOODS MORE SUSTAINABLE?

The Sustainability Forum invites you to attend the following forum:

On Thursday 17th March 6.00 p.m.- for a 6.30 p.m. Start and 8.45 p.m.finish

HOW CAN WE MAKE OUR NEIGHBOURHOODS MORE SUSTAINABLE?

The City Council is currently consulting on its strategy for future growth (The Core Strategy). One of the flagship policies of the emerging strategy is the creation of a series of Sustainable Urban Neighbourhoods.

This Forum will ask : Is this the right way to provide for new housing and employment in Birmingham?

What are the essential features of a sustainable neighbourhood? How can sustainable neighbourhoods be delivered in practice?

Can the concept be applied to neighbourhoods where no major change is proposed as well as to neighbourhoods where there will be new development?

The debate will be introduced and led by representatives of ENTEC, who are undertaking the Sustainability Appraisal of the Core Strategy.
