Do council estates have to look like Council Estates?

Rethinking Cities is delighted to announce our next Conversation on Future Lifestyles, at which Liz Kessler poses the question "Do council estates have to look like "council estates"?"

Until the end of September, Liz was Public Space Coordinator for EC1 New Deal for Communities. She has been working in EC1 for the last 6 years overseeing the implementation of a series of projects to improve the streets, parks and estates in this area; the aim being to improve feelings of safety, health and well-being, with the particular objective of creating an environment that encourages people to walk from their homes to destinations: work, shops, schools, parks, leisure, public transport etc. Community engagement and resident satisfaction has been fundamental to this work which has been recognised through a number of award-winning places, spaces and walking routes.

In October, Liz has been commissioned by Urban Design London to turn her skills to council estates and help UDL develop an on-line training module for those working in and around urban council estates.

The next Conversation  from 5.30pm - 7.30pm on Tuesday 17 November will be held at John Thompson & Partners  LLP 23 - 25 Great Sutton Street, London EC1V 0DN.
