The Landscape Institute will reveal its new publication on housing and landscape on 3 March.
The launch will take place as part of the new Ecobuild Fringe Programme, which brings together a variety of events from exhibitors, supporters and partners, all taking place in or around Earls Court.
The LI’s publication argues that, if we are to produce sustainable communities for the future, housing can no longer be divorced from the landscape in which it is set and that all aspects of landscape should be considered from the beginning of any housing development.
“We need to deliver homes and communities in which people will be able to live, work and flourish,” said the LI’s chief executive, Alastair McCapra.
Such a landscape-led approach will help to meet other challenges currently facing us, such as climate change adaption and mitigation, water management and flood risk, he added.
To mark the launch of the publication, the event will discuss the key issues of landscape and housing via a series of seminars. These are suitable for building and landscape professionals who plan, design, deliver and manage housing.
