Livingstone hits the road for Urban Design Week 2000

  • Comment

London mayor Ken Livingstone is set to resurrect his open-top campaign bus as part of Urban Design Week 2000, which will run from 18-24 September this year.

Livingstone is due to launch the week, which is subtitled 'Twenty-first Century Places', with a tour visiting areas of successful urban design in the capital augmented by presentations from Terry Farrell and Sir Peter Hall. On 21 September there will be a conference at the Bridgewater Hall in Manchester with speakers including CABE chairman Stuart Lipton, housing and planning minister Nick Raynsford and English Heritage chairman Sir Neil Cossons.

The future urban designs of Sheffield, Leeds, Hackney and Barking will be the subject of some of the public lectures delivered during the week and there will be organised walks around Leith, Coventry, Leicester and Cardiff, pointing out the bad as well as the good in urban design.

The Urban Design Alliance consists of all the main professional bodies concerned with designing the built environment. For more information on the week's events visit www.udal.org.uk
