Annual Debate

Annual Debate 2018
The Urban Regeneration of Our Exisiting Cities

Urban regeneration is one of the many issues helping to shape 21st Century cities. Successful regeneration prevents urban decline; it can revitalise derelict urban areas by providing the spark that reignites positive economic, social and environmental impacts. Regeneration includes the revitalisation of brownfield sites and a rebuilding of the city’s economic base.

So what makes for successful regeneration projects? Amongst the variety of issues presented by an ageing city, how can regeneration schemes focus on newer challenges like decarbonisation, self-sufficiency and wellbeing whilst tackling the more traditional issues presented by population growth, security and biodiversity loss?

Of increasing concern is the question of urban density; is the huge demand for housing and pressure to maximise profit through high-density schemes leading to an unhealthy variety of land uses? In connection with this, what is the role of public space in the regeneration of cities?

CIRIA’s third annual debate will bring together leading professionals across the built environment and constructions sectors to debate their ideas and experiences for addressing the complex challenges of an urban future.
