  3. Dear Clementina, Thank you very much for your help. I just sent an email to mail.london@landscapeinstitute.org, and I look forward to joining the group. Best wishes! Galit
  4. And is it true that members of the Landscape Institute's core - by which I mean landscape architect volunteers and not the paid bureaucracy - are discouraged from responding to posts on this, the Institute's debating site?

  11. Hi everyone, Join us on Thursday 22nd September at Brewdog, Cardiff from 6pm for a summer get together. Please book via the link below: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/liw-summer-social-tickets-402668551477 Looking forward to seeing you there.
  12. The National Lottery Heritage Fund are keen to hear LI members' views on their investment priorities over the next 10 years. Since 1996, around 25% of investment has supported landscape, marine, and nature projects. Depending on the outcome of this review, the Heritage Fund could be investing as much as £800 million in the sector. The landscape sector tends to be smaller than the built and museums sectors, so it's crucial that we make our views known. Complete the public strategy survey at heritagefund.org.uk
  13. Dear Graham and Penny, ONS annual inflation figures of 17 August for the year upto July 2022 were CPI of 10.1% and RPI of 12.3% ref. https://www.ons.gov.uk/economy/inflationandpriceindices The Bank of England Monetary Policy Report of 3 August advises "CPI inflation is expected to rise more than forecast in the May Report, from 9.4% in June to just over 13% in 2022 Q4, and to remain at very elevated levels throughout much of 2023, before falling to the 2% target two years ahead." ref. https://www.bankofengland.co.uk/-/media/boe/files/monetary-policy-report/2022/august/monetary-policy-report-august-2022.pdf Graham: If your profit margin is 10% then you will be operating at a loss in one year’s time, given the present level of inflation. Maybe this is an argument for 20% profit ab initio?

  15. I think that's all you can do realistically. I don't think many clients would accept a regular fee review on a shorter period than a year.
  16. A new report from the Wildfowl & Wetland Trust (WWT) outlines how creating wildlife-rich wetlands in deprived urban communities could help address health and social inequalities associated with lack of access to quality green and blue spaces by relieving stress, lowering temperatures, reducing air and water pollution, alleviating flooding, and improving biodiversity.

  17. Analysing trends across diversity, urban population growth, poverty and inequality, urban economies, green infrastructure, planning, public health, governance, technology, and resilience, UN Habitat's World Cities 2022 report envisions an optimistic post-pandemic future in which urban areas are sustainable and adaptable to future challenges.

  18. UK100 - a network of local authorities aiming to shift their communities to net zero ahead of the government’s 2030 target - have published a report analysing the progress made towards delivering climate action through nature restoration a local level in the past year, and recommended actions to progress this work across the UK. From uk100.org Read the full article here
  19. The Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC) will award neighbourhoods in England funding to create or improve over 100 local parks. Significantly, the government has allocated the £9 million Levelling Up Parks Fund based on identified need. Rather than a competitive bidding process, DLUHC has used data from Natural England’s Green Infrastructure Mapping Tool to identify 85 areas – including Liverpool, Birmingham, Carlisle, and 16 London boroughs – where residents have the least access to outdoor space. The pre-selected local authorities will be able to choose where and how to spend their allocated funding. DLUHC has published a prospectus that sets out how the Fund will operate in England. Alongside the announcement, the LI has published a policy briefing on the Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill currently making its way through parliament - more on this below. Read more here
  20. Hi Jemima, I was part of a very large P2C study group run online by Sophie Entwistle (recently chartered). She hosts monthly talks online from different professionals covering all aspects of the syllabus. Lots of people there too to possibly speak to on a one to one basis. Please free to contact her if you would like adding to the list. Sophie.Entwisle@pegasusgroup.co.uk Hope this helps. Jonny
  21. Hi @Abi Palmer-Greenwood Thanks for the info. I contacted the LISW and was passed the contact details for the Bristol online group, however I've not received a response from them. I've contact the P2C email for help but they simply advised I post on here. Do you happen to know of any other active remote study groups that I might be able to join? Or is it a case of posting on every group forum until I get a response? I seem to be going round in circles a bit... Many thanks!
  22. Hi all, I've added this as 'an event', but not sure yet how best to use this forum and who gets notified of what, so thought I'd post here too, I think p2c students might get a lot out of it... Join NFM Charity Slow The Flow on Wednesday 17th August 6-9pm for an informative evening with experts on Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS). Guest speakers will showcase inspirational landscape from our region and abroad, as well as give updates on plans and support for SuDS available locally. There will be a Q+A session, where you can bring your questions for the panel. We’ll also have drinks and nibbles, networking, a chance to look at the exhibition, and will be handing out the fabulous prizes for our quiz, to celebrate the fantastic summer we’ve had with our touring roadshow! Please get a FREE eventbrite ticket at https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/slowing-the-flow-in-towns-tickets-386984379697?aff=ebdsoporgprofile, so that we can get catering numbers right. And of course please share with anyone you think might be interested!
  23. Hi Antonella, as noted elsewhere, making it easier to 'follow' the forum and be notified of new content should improve engagement? I had tried to follow all discussions, but have not been notified of this post, for example.
  24. Hello, I've only just spotted this discussion, because 'Connect' isn't easy to follow threads on. It's annoying in the same way that TL used to be, you can't easily just follow everything, and if new topics are added it doesn't notify you, so you have to find out they're there in order to follow... It would be very helpful to have a 'follow all new discussions' button. It would also be good to advertise this forum better e.g. in Vista - maybe note 'recent discussions' etc to encourage more participation?
