From poor doors to identical floors — design for social inclusion


Experts in housing design and provision will discuss the planning and management of mixed tenure developments. Panelists will explore design concepts such as ‘tenure-blind’ building plans, which can influence community integration. What practical measures help cohesion and how are service charges kept fair? Speakers will share ideas on long-term planning strategies and how they might adapt and respond to change.

Speakers include:

- Sue Cooper, head of business development at Catalyst

- Spyridon Katsaros, associate director at PRP

- Victoria Pinoncely, author of Poverty, place and inequality and research officer at Royal Town Planning Institute

- Colin Wiles, housing and planning consultant at Wiles Consulting

- Chair: Paul Lincoln, deputy chief executive of the Landscape Institute. Paul has a background in housing, public space and regeneration and formerly managed communications for Toynbee Housing Association.
