Feedback from delegates who attended the inaugural soils conference organised by O'Hare last October at Howbery Park, Wallingford, was overwhelmingly positive and indicated that an annual soils conference for landscape architects, contractors, developers and other industry professionals would be welcomed.
Delegates said the conference gave them confidence in specifying soils and covered a wide range of soil-related issues, from planning through to design and construction.
'SoilsCon 2016 – Soil use, management and policy' so far has confirmed the following speakers:
Tim O'Hare, Rob Askew and Tim White of Tim O'Hare Associates; The Landscape Group's Alistair Bayford, Andy Spetch of British Sugar TOPSOIL and Luke Fay, MD at Treework Environmental Practice. Further speakers are yet to be announced.
This year's conference will be held on 5 October at Phyllis Court, Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 01491 822653 for further information.
