If you’re at a loose end tomorrow you might like to pop down the Watershed where for a hundred fifty quid you can attend ‘This green and pleasant land: a one day conference’.
It’s nothing less than “a candid look at sustainable land management, building design and construction” and “will explore the way we have historically used land in the UK and, if we are to live sustainably in the 21st century and beyond, how we need to radically change the way we manage our land as a valuable resource.”
Or then again you might want to save your money. As the keynote speaker is none other than George Ferguson of Acanthus Ferguson Mann presenting case studies of “successful, sustainable and imaginative regeneration projects such as the former Elizabeth Shaw Chocolate Factory in Bristol”!
Yes, he’s doing a “green” case study of a speculative development that’s not even been built. A development that will radically sprawl over on to the city’s iconic, world class greenway to make room for 25 car parking spaces and will sustainably create loads of one-bedroomed investment flats in an area which already has a documented oversupply of such properties.
Is that a brass neck I see on the man with the red trousers?
