The Trees and Design Action

  23/09/2015
Last Updated:  10/12/2015
BETTER PLACES, BETTER INFRASTRUCTURE, BETTER LIVES: DELIVERING REAL VALUE WITH URBAN TREES TWO DATES TO CHOOSE FROM: Glasgow, City Halls, 22 June 2015 – half day (£30*) Edinburgh, Heriot-Watt Campus, 23 June 2015 – full day (£45*) THE DETAIL Based on The Trees and Design Action Group (TDAG)'s latest publication: Trees in Hard Landscapes: A Guide for Delivery (of which delegates will receive a complimentary hard copy!), the seminars will offer a rich combination of presentations and discussions exploring how to make the most of trees in town centres, streets, car parks and other hard landscapes in the Scottish context. The latest innovation for integrated green-grey-blue infrastructure solutions to creating a fit-for-purpose 21st century public realm are at the heart of the programme. This includes the latest techniques to avoid conflicts and create mutual benefits between trees and surrounding infrastructure (eg. tree-friendly load-bearing rooting environment), and approaches to achieve more effective delivery, working with colleagues from Roads and Planning services. The cross-disciplinary line-up of speakers coming from the US, Sweden, France, Scotland and elsewhere will cover topics such as: Creating environments enabling the delivery of sustainable transport objectives and achieving a context-sensitive balance between place and movement, as articulated in Designing Streets; Latest evidence and best practices for stimulating retail (eg. increasing dwell time, visitor expenditure, etc) and wider regeneration programmes - with complementary perspectives offered by an academic, an expert witness* and a developer*; The 'Stockholm Solution' to cost effectively scale-up sustainable drainage solutions (SuDS) while contributing to local networks of renewable energy production and carbon sequestration as well as to waste reduction; How-to make better use of the planning system* (eg. creating effective 'policy hooks' within local plans and development management documents, drafting enforceable planning conditions...), and existing funding streams to deliver all the above... with trees! * Only at the Edinburgh seminar on June 23. The events will also offer a small exhibition with relevant documentation from institutional partners and products. Commercial stands will include: Carbon Gold, DeepRoot, GreenBlue Urban, InfraGreen Solutions, Hydro International and the UK Biochar Research Centre.
