Building Liveable Neighbourhoods

Nicola Beech, Mark Drane, Steve Melia, Miriam Ricci and Danielle Sinnett

Description Details

Liveable neighbourhoods are much talked about, but what does this term mean? Is Bristol a liveable city? Liveability has to take into account issues of housing, transport, street design, green spaces and creating places and communities for all ages. What does the latest research show about liveability and where are the gaps in evidence? Is policy – for example, encouraging more cycling and walking – fit for purpose in creating liveable neighbourhoods? What recommendations can we bring together for future cities? Using examples from Bristol and elsewhere, the speakers (including Cllr Nicola Beech, Mark Drane, Steve Melia, Miriam Ricci and Danni Sinnett) discuss what makes a liveable neighbourhood.

Booking opens Monday 2 September 2019.

Book online or in person at Watershed Box Office or on Tel: 0117 927 5100 Mon – Fri from 09:00 and Sat & Sun from 10:00.

Events start punctually and, out of consideration to other audience members and speakers, our policy is not to admit latecomers. As this is a free event – and in the interest of fairness – only one ticket can be reserved per transaction. If you would like additional tickets please book for the event again. To combat the high number of ‘no shows’ at our free events, we overbook by 20%. We ask that ticket holders are in their seats 10 minutes before start to guarantee their place. We will also admit anyone waiting without a ticket into empty seats 5 minutes before the start time.

We endeavour to hold events in venues that are accessible to all. Watershed’s cinemas and event spaces are all located on the first floor which is accessible via the lift located in the main entrance foyer at Box Office. Once on the first floor there is level access to all areas. The venue has a hearing loop system. If you have specific access concerns it is advisable to contact the venue direct.

We sometimes film and photograph events. Please let us know if you do not wish to be filmed or photographed.
