Understanding Local Distinctiveness in Nottingham

As development pressures are now being felt by settlements large and small, urban and rural, do we really understand what makes these places special and distinctive? 

Join Louise Thomas to explore:

Why local distinctiveness matters + How developers view local character + How to identify local distinctiveness (toolkits and guides) + How to embed recommendations and requirements into the planning system.

This seminar will be of interest to local authority officers and Councillors, civic societies, amenity and local community groups, and development planning and design consultants with an interest in urban design.
