Urgent action is needed to improve climate resilience in urban areas as extreme weather conditions become a more frequent occurrence.
There is a growing acceptance that construction projects, whether commercial developments, housing estates, infrastructure, or public-sector projects, all have the potential to damage natural habitats, threatening wildlife and plant species.
Biodiversity indicators are being used by the construction industry to protect sensitive sites and minimise damage to ecology.
It is beyond dispute that laying down swathes of concrete will exacerbate flooding by causing run-off. Alternatives are needed to blacktop, either through more green infrastructure or permeable surfacing.
Water companies are showing an interest in schemes that manage run-off during flash floods. This marks a turning point, widening possibilities as new funding becomes available.
New partnerships are needed between landowners, developers, architects, water companies, transport planners and engineers, urban designers, suppliers and consultants to alleviate the impacts of extreme weather.
All stakeholders should work together to create more resilient environments. A range of complementary measures should be implemented in a cohesive, inter-connected way – comprising SuDS, rain gardens, pocket parks, planters, green screens, green roofs, increased tree canopy cover and drainage systems.
This will require re-allocation of road and kerbspace, replacing space for cars with green + blue spaces.
The conference is designed for planners and engineers working in local authority, urban planners and landscape architects, landowners and developers, water and flood management professionals.
