Is the quality of new development in Chester good enough? Are the right buildings being built in the right places? Are we leaving a legacy for future generations to admire? These are just some of the questions that will be discussed at the Chester Design Debate 2014 organised jointly by Cheshire Society of Architects and Chester Civic Trust.
The event will be a Question Time-style debate with an invited panel and public audience. Confirmed panellists include:
