Essex Road Rain Gardens - Jenna Selby on behalf of Waltham Forest Council (3).jpeg

Climate Resilient Streets will attract over 200 national and local government practitioners, landowners and developers, utilities companies and water experts, urban planners and landscaping architects to discuss and debate the future of climate resilient streets.  


Climate Resilient Streets 2023 provides an excellent and unique opportunity to meet with product suppliers and service experts working across the fields of:


  • Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SuDS)

  • Flood prevention techniques

  • Green infrastructure

  • Landscaping and urban design

  • Biodiversity Net Gains

  • Community / Business engagement and lots more 





Creating green & blue environments – what are the components that make up a climate resilient street?

Why do we need to change our streets? How do we measure the benefits? What are the main challenges to bringing about the changes we need at street level and how do we overcome those challenges?

Morning break


Small interventions that make a big difference

Micro-level measures that don’t cost the earth. There are quick and inexpensive innovative ways of creating climate resilient streets and reducing flood risk. Measures, made possible by different funding sources, can complement one another to make a significant impact

Best practice: More than just a pretty streetscape
