Join expert speakers from Eight Associates to learn about the growth of green infrastructure in Bristol.
Bristol is a renowned green city…but what are the challenges and opportunities when accommodating development growth?
Can local policy and sustainable regeneration result in a truly healthier urban environment to retain this accolade and ensure a continued pathway to success?
Joanna Peacock (associate) and Rachel Crookes (ecologist) both at eight associates will present a fascinating talk on how green infrastructure, biodiversity enhancement and healthy spaces are a powerful combination that results in multiple physical, social and environmental benefits, including better air quality, improved access to nature, flood risk management and healthy buildings.
The session will look in detail at the economical, social and environmental benefits of green infrastructure from small to large scale features. Bristol's policies on the implementation of green infrastructure are also discussed, along with best practice case studies and ideas that could maintain Bristol's reputation as one of the UK's greenest cities.
The Green Register and eight associates have worked together for many years to promote the benefits of robust ecological assessments, sustainable masterplanning and green infrastructure
