Biosecurity in the public realm CPD
Biosecurity and plant health are emerging as major threats to ecosystem resilience. As our climate changes, new pests and diseases such as Ash dieback and Dutch Elm Disease will become more common, meaning that designers need to anticipate significant changes to our urban and rural landscapes in the near to medium future.
At this session Harry Watkins (Chair of the Landscape Institute Biosecurity Group) will present an overview of the emerging regulatory framework as well as the risks and design opportunities for planners and designers working in the public realm at every work stage, from landscape assessment through to master plan, detailed design and contract administration.
