Planning for Quality of Life in Sustainable Development

Costas Georghiou is a Chartered Architect and Town Planner and currently the Chair of the Wolverhampton & District Society of Architects. He has a lifetime’s experience in architecture, town planning, regeneration and conservation in the UK and overseas. He served as Wolverhampton’s Chief Planning and Highways Officer from 1993 to 2006, when he set up CNG Planning Consultancy. In 2007 the University of Wolverhampton conferred upon him the title of Visiting Professor of Architecture & Urban Design.

‘Quality of Life’ is a key outcome of sustainable development. It can be defined as the degree of well-being felt by an individual or a group of people. Quality of life is not necessarily related to how materially wealthy a place is. Unlike ‘Standard of Living’ it cannot be measured directly but it can be assessed by looking at its physical and psychological components. The lecture will examine the key aspects of Quality of life and give examples of places where these are evident.

50 Shades of Green

Tim Pollard Head of Sustainability for Wolseley UK (a major distributor of plumbing and heating products). He was responsible for delivering the Sustainable Building Centre at Leamington Spa and he helps defining Plumb Centre’s sustainable product offer and its commercial implementation. Tim’s breadth of knowledge stretches across a wide range of products and technologies together with the implications and requirements of a sustainable supply chain. He sits on the DECC RHI Industry Advisory Group, the HHIC Low Carbon Group, the Green Deal Providers Forum, the NEF Advisory Council and chairs the WRAP/Defra Water Efficiency Products Group.

The terms ‘Green’ and ‘Sustainable’ can mean many things to different people, especially in the built environment. Tim will describe the issues which will continue to drive change in practices and standards, defining some of the solutions available and the progress required in both new built and RMI domestic and non-domestic markets. He will also reference the various government programmes with a constant view of practicality and realism.
