Triodos Bank Good Morning: Networking Breakfast - Sustainable Urban Growth
Wed 16 November 2016, 07:45 – 09:15 GMT
Bristol is a hub for businesses with ambitions beyond profit. We invite you to connect with each other at the fifth in our series of networking events.
This is your chance to learn from and find opportunities with local, like-minded organisations. An organic breakfast will be provided.
The theme of the event is Sustainable Urban Growth and will include a talk from Mike Fox, Associate Planning Director and Mel Clinton, Associate, Director of Planning and Economic Regeneration at Nash Partnership.
Lack of housing is one of the most significant challenges of our time. Successive governments and the industry have failed to deliver over the last 40 years. As a result, we are on the verge of an affordability crisis that has implications for our communities, our economy and our environment.
The Mayor of Bristol has made housing a key priority and accommodating growth is central to the forthcoming Joint Spatial Plan for the West of England.
However, it is not just about numbers. Housing is fundamental to wellbeing so the quality, type of homes and sense of place are vital too.
Mike Fox and Mel Clinton will share their views on how we can deliver more housing, while creating more environmentally-responsive, economically successful and distinctive places.
Spaces are free but limited, so register early to attend.
