A Forum: The Intensified City

In order to deliver high quality intensified cities, it is critical that the right people are working together. It will be paramount to ensure that finance, delivery, social needs and environmental challenges are all simultanesouly and carefully considered when delivering developments that successfully accommodate large numbers of people. This calls for collaboration across diverse disciplines combined with political will.

It is essential that we find engagement mechanisms that will achieve a democratic resolution of the issues. We must demonstrate not only what the key and critical principles are and how they are applied, but also why. As a starting point we invited a panel comprised of people representing politics, policy, development and planning – expertise central to the effective and sensitive realisation of intensification – to respond to the principles that emerged from the three salons.

Each panellist spoke for 5 minutes – you can listen to their talks by clicking here.
