Planners continue to work to ensure high quality developments are delivered across Scotland and best practice regarding the integration of green spaces and infrastructure into development is steadily emerging. This RTPI West of Scotland Chapter event marks Urban Design Week 2012 and its theme of Active Urban Design. We are focusing on green space and green infrastructure and their integration into new developments and existing environments. Green space and infrastructure has a range of benefits in improving the sustainability of our environment, providing habitats, spaces for play and relaxation and improving quality of life.
The following speakers will highlight good practise across the West of Scotland:
Deryck Irvine, Greenspace Scotland - who will consider how green networks can contribute to better quality and more sustainable development.
Stuart McMillan, Renfrewshire Council - who will highlight work on the Council's SSCI mainstreaming charrette in Johnstone and how green infrastructure is being integrated into the masterplan.
Chris Stewart, Collective Architecture - who will focus on urban deisgn and masterplanning work carried out by Collective Architecture on projects across the West of Scotland.
