What is the point of redevelopment?

A talk and discussion that asks 'what is the point of redevelopment?'

We spend a lot of money 'redeveloping' run-down areas, especially in our inner cities, but what are we trying to achieve when we do this? Robert Kingham, an Associate at Drivers Jonas LLP, an independent firm of property consultants, will lead a talk and discussion about redevelopment asking questions such as: Does it work? What does it say about our view of the kinds of places we'd like to live, study and work in? Are redevelopment projects a chance to create a little piece of utopia or an ineffective sticking-plaster on a much bigger problem?

Big Ideas is a series of events we hold in a pub in central London. Sessions generally start with a question. Someone who has some relevant expertise gives a very brief, informal talk. After that a discussion develops in a free and unstructured manner. It's not a lecture, and it's not a debate; it's a pub argument, but unlike any you've had before.
