Architect urges council not to let anti-tower campaigners ‘overshadow’ debate
BDP’s director in Bristol has made an outspoken call to the council not to let vocal campaigners win a row about building tall in the city.
Yuli Cadney-Toh issued a press statement on the day a consultation closed on the council’s Urban Living planning document in which she urged the council to go ahead with its proposals to allow clusters of towers in seven areas around the city.
Increasing urban density is the only way to build the 105,000 new homes the region has identified it needs by 2036 without sprawling into surrounding countryside, she argued. Building away from economic centres would increase reliance on transport and place strain on infrastructure and families, she added.
