This full day event will explore the role of urban design in regeneration and how relatively simple schemes can transform the character, feel and prioritisation of an area. Speakers will discuss the role of design in the urban environment, the need for regeneration in Coventry and how urban design has given the city back to pedestrians and cyclists and reduced the influence of the car.
In the afternoon there will be a walking tour of Coventry City Centre to see some of the urban design schemes in practice plus the exciting regeneration schemes which are currently being implemented including the biggest change to Coventry’s Ring Road since its construction 40 years ago.
