Understanding Local Distinctiveness in Nottingham


Location: 38 Carrington Street Urban Room, Nottingham

This event is free of charge but numbers are limited, register here

A series of talks and workshops to explore what makes Nottingham’s unique character and how contemporary design can respond to historic settings.

As development pressures are now being felt by settlements large and small, urban and rural, do we really understand what makes these places special and distinctive?

Participants will explore:

Why local distinctiveness matters + How developers view local character + How to identify local distinctiveness (toolkits and guides) + How to embed recommendations and requirements into the planning system.

This seminar will be of interest to local authority officers and Councillors, civic societies, amenity and local community groups, and development planning and design consultants with an interest in urban design.
