The Beyond Green team spent much of last week in Norwich engaged in a series of public workshops and exhibitions surrounding developments in our Broadland project. Since the last public exhibitions held in June, our design team has been busy drafting a masterplan for the site, delving deeper into the spatial geography of the area, running ecological and hydrological studies, and looking into how the development could best integrate within the surrounding infrastructure.
On Wednesday the 5th and Friday the 7th of October, we were joined by key stakeholders from over 35 different organisations for a series of workshops exploring key aspects of the project’s development, such as green infrastructure, water, energy and waste management, components of a successful high street and various delivery strategies. On Saturday and Sunday, we hosted a public exhibition and were joined by 100+ individuals from the immediate community. Together, these events provided invaluable feedback for determining the next steps for the project.
To those who made it out for the exhibition and workshops, thank you kindly. Your feedback and insights were very much appreciated. If you didn’t get a chance to join us, you can keep up to speed on the project by looking through the exhibition boards (PDF) that were on display at the events.
In the video below, Beyond Green’s Executive Chairman Jonathan Smales briefly discusses the aim of the workshops and the value they bring to the development process as a whole.
