Seminar: An Urban Design Toolkit for Enhanced Liveability

Presenter: Alan Whiteley - Head of Landscape Architecture & Urban Design, WSP

11:30-12:30pm, Wednesday July 31st, In person at GWRC and online.

This in-person seminar will be an opportunity to learn about the newly released Urban Design Toolkit for the Wellington Region – presented by Alan Whiteley, Head of Landscape Architecture and Urban Design at WSP.

The Urban Design Toolkit was commissioned by Greater Wellington as a way of supporting our communities to envision sustainable urban communities of the future – places that are more resilient, have a lighter impact on climate and environment, but also better deliver on people’s social, economic and cultural needs.

The Toolkit was developed to support the recently released Transport Emissions Reduction Pathway for the region, and there will be a brief outline of this strategy as part of the session.

This event is both in-person and online.  You can sign up below for either:
