Director of Place Shaping and Town Planning at Westminster City Council, Deirdra Armsby, will be speaking at our next 'Science Cities' forum on 14th April.

The forum will look at the creation and design of high quality housing, public realm and community amenities in our towns and cities post Covid-19, Access to green space has become a particular focus during the pandemic and as our 'Science Cities' continue to 'over-heat', intelligent planning is required for key worker housing set in landscaped grounds where residents can relax.

Deirdra provides strategic leadership on the form and function of a City for All, She is responsible for integrating Place Shaping principles throughout the Planning decisions process and an eclectic range of programmes including Strand Aldwych, Harrow Road and Victoria.

Previously Deirdra was Director of Regeneration and Planning at Newham, and worked at Hackney & RBKC, gaining experience in strategic and local mixed use development, conservation, neighbourhood advocacy, transport, public health and strategy.
