University of Cambridge Estates and Southwark Council join our science cities and housing forum

R&D 2 at Babraham Research Campus, Cambridgeshire (BioMed Realty)

Future Cities Forum will discuss the expansion of science R&D and hospital sites in UK cities as well as supporting affordable and key worker homes, in its first online event of 2021 with Cambridge University, David Lock Associates, BDP, Southwark Council, Scott Brownrigg, Oxford City Council, Stride Treglown, and BioMed Realty.

The discussion is part of an ongoing series of talks with a focus on the over-heating of science cities and the need for joined-up planning for housing, jobs and transport in centres of research excellence that continue to try to attract world talent to settle in liveable areas where 'place' and affordable housing is of the utmost importance.
