Fifteen-minute cities: Controlling or liberating?
Join us for this exclusive event for our supporter and councillor networks to discuss whether we can liberate people by creating beautiful, denser cities with local amenities on doorstops, or whether plans to do so are too controlling and impractical.
Time & Location
20 Jun 2023, 18:00 – 18:45
About the event
Our cities' arteries are clogged by congestion and air pollution, a lack of housebuilding means home ownership is a pipedream and rents unaffordable, and a failure to build beautiful is undermining civic pride in our communities. But the solutions to these issues, like fifteen-minute cities, low-traffic neighbourhoods, and densification, are increasingly controversial.
Can we liberate people by creating beautiful, denser cities with local amenities on doorstops, or are plans to do so too controlling and impractical?
Our panellists will include Nicholas Boys Smith, Director of Create Streets and Neil Garratt AM, London Assembly member for Croydon & Sutton.
