The Multi-Themed City

Over 200 people were involved in a series of events looking at future options for the way we plan, design and manage cities and towns to meet climate change, equality, and health challenges.

The work ended by proposing four interlinked objectives – to reduce miles travelled but not journeys, support local living, rebalance activity across urban areas, and allow for more flexible and imaginative use of buildings. None of these can easily be achieved without the others.

These four led us to develop the Multi-Timed City concept which draws each objective together at different spatial scales:

1) Buildings

2) Local Living

3) City Structures, and

4) Connectivity
