Create Streets at LPC

Green places. Green lives: how do we green up our streets and create new places more sustainably?

Join us at a panel session at the Labour Party Conference discussing:

  • How can more urban greenery and tree planting play a greater role in regenerating our towns and cities? What are the public health benefits?
  • Why are there fewer trees in less prosperous places? Can we plant street trees to achieve biodiversity net gain?
  • What can councils do now? What policy options are available to a future Labour government?
  • What other options are available to create new homes and places more sustainably?
