Laying the foundations for greener living

A major investment that will pave the way for greener, safer urban living in the UK is launched on October 15, 2003. "Towards a sustainable urban environment" (SUE) will support research that will shape the future development of our towns and cities.

Themes will include:

  • Designing living areas less susceptible to crime
  • Developing more appealing and efficient public transport systems
  • Managing waste and pollution
  • Making existing buildings more environmentally friendly

The initiative is being launched by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).

It will involve researchers from many different areas including the physical, environmental and social sciences, engineering, economics, physical geography and town planning.

The welcome address will be given by Minister for Housing and Planning, Keith Hill. The Chief Executive of EPSRC, Professor John O'Reilly, said "Laying the foundations for greener, safer urban living is about much more than just bricks and mortar, every aspect of our daily lives needs to be taken into consideration. This initiative is recognition of that, bringing together leading researchers in all areas involved in building a sustainable future."

Keith Hill, regeneration minister, said: "In order to create vibrant, sustainable communities we need to identify what people want from the places where they live and work. Sustainable communities are about more than just houses.

They're about jobs, schools and public spaces - improving quality of life for our citizens. And that's why this research into the future of our sustainable urban environment is so important. I am pleased to see the EPSRC investing in this project".
