Debate the future of public sector landscaping at Saltex seminar

Leading players from the world of regeneration and public sector landscaping projects are to take part in a Horticulture Week hosted panel discussion at this September's IOG Saltex exhibition.

The debate has been specially convened to examine the impact of both the public sector spending squeeze and the government’s changes to regeneration and planning policy on the future of public sector landscaping projects.

The panel includes Dr Tim Williams, managing director of Navigant Consulting's public services practice and leader of the firm’s regeneration and housing advisory team. 

Tim has previously been an advisor to David Miliband at OPDM, is currently advising the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA), and chaired the Housing Corporation commission into the design of affordable housing in the Thames Gateway.  
He is also a columnist with Horticulture Week’s sister publication Regeneration & Renewal.

Joining Tim will be leading public sector landscape architect Noel Farrer, founding partner of Farrer Huxley Associates, who has developed an extensive portfolio of clients in housing, masterplanning, urban open space, play and education. Noel is chair of the Landscape Institute’s policy committee and in 2006 was appointed as a consultant on the CABE Space strategic enabling panel.

Kate Lowe, editor of Horticulture Week, will chair the discussion which will also feature other leading players.  

The debate will take place on Wednesday 8th September at IOG Saltex which takes place at Windsor Racecourse.  It will start at 12.30pm (lunch is provided) and will be held in The Grandstand. 

For a full preview of this year’s show see the 20th August edition of Horticulture Week.
