Conference to probe green infrastructure challenges

A conference in London later this week will look at how planners, developers and architects can tackle challenges related to the provision of green infrastructure.

The Healthy Design Healthy Places conference, taking place in London on 29 November, is being produced by Planning’s sister title, Horticulture Week.

From ‘green roofs’ and ‘living walls’ to ‘sky gardens’, the incorporation of vegetation into the fabric of building interiors, exteriors, and surrounding infrastructure is increasingly important as cities aim to improve the environment and mitigate the impacts of climate change.

However, increasing the amount of green infrastructure in new developments can present technical and other challenges.

The event will focus on how we can resolve these issues and meet the growing demand for healthier places to work and live.

Speakers will include Mark Camley, executive director of park and venues, at the London Legacy Development Corporation; Mehron Kirk, landscape architecture director, BDP, and Ken Trew, senior project manager, Argent LLP.
