If you missed our February 2019 seminar showcasing leaders in urban greening and water sensitive urban design from the development sector, the presentations are now available.

Josh Byrne demonstrated how Western Australia is rethinking how infill development is delivered at White Gum Valley and Knutsford. A more diverse mix of housing typologies combined with permeable surfaces and greener streets ensures that urban renewal gives something back.
