The Barbados Town Planning Society held its lunchtime webinar on 21 May, 2021.  Presentation documents at bottom of page.

Can housing development help revitalise Bridgetown?

What is a city without people? In the third webinar in our series on Revitalising Bridgetown, we look at housing and the human factor. To what extent can new-build housing or the refurbishment of existing buildings for housing use, help to bring life back into our capital city?

Key questions to be addressed are:

  • Who wants to live in the city?
  • Would it be economically viable?
  • What are the implications for existing city residents?
