Description

How Garden Cities Can Become ConnectedCities

19th June 2019, Letchworth, UK

Integrating New Garden Settlements with Existing Communities

Key Target Audience

Local Authorities considering a new garden settlement

LEPS and Developers

Government Departments

Consultants and those interested in integrated housing and public transport

Sustainable and healthy travel plans that can include: rail; walking and cycling; buses; car sharing and other emerging technologies, are an essential element of Garden Cities. The fourth ‘Letchworth Conference’ will consider how new settlements can be integrated with existing communities by sustainable travel.

Local resistance to new development legitimately focuses on how roads are already overloaded. The Government, through the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government is promoting a strategy of building new Garden Towns and Villages as part of efforts to address the UK's housing crisis.

But is sustainable transport a key feature of these initiatives?

ConnectedCities puts public transport at the heart of both greenfield and brownfield new development. The conference will consider ways to bring transport in line with Garden City Principles, integrating transport for new settlements with existing communities.


Conference attendees will learn more about:

travel factors Local Authorities need to consider when planning where to locate new housing

What planning services Transport Providers offer

How LEPs can co-ordinate transport and other plans for development in their area

Ways that Developers work with communities

What key Consultants skills are needed to deliver Garden Town development


The full details of the programme for the day will be posted here shortly.
