New Garden Cities and large-scale developments must be places that address climate change mitigation and adaptation. They must have a long-term vision to deal with climate change impacts within a local democratic context, allowing communities to participate in forming and implementing solutions to the problems that we face. Climate adaptation must be a foundational principle in how we plan for new growth.

Drawing upon the learnings from Garden City Standards Practical Guide 14: Building Climate Resilient New Communities, this New Communities Group webinar will explore the overarching requirements of a successful adaptation strategy, provide an overview of recommendations on how master planning can be carried out to ensure climate change adaptation, as well as recommendations on delivery.

This session will be essential for councillors, developers, consultants, business leaders, council officers, community groups, architects and designers, students and anyone who is interested in the creation of climate resilient new communities.

This is part of the TCPA New Communities Group programme of events.
