    Brunei Post-Graduate Student

    During July and August 2012 Angus Kennedy provided support to a post-graduate student from Brunei studying at the University of Birmingham.  She has been funded by her government and is doing her dissertation on urban compaction and high density housing as the way forward for future public sector housing development in Brunei.  She was very keen to use Castle Vale as a case study to demonstrate how high density development can take place without building high rise towers, and what makes Castle Vale work as a successful neighbourhood.  She was also interested in the community involvement dimension and how the community was and is able to influence what goes on on the estate.  This included a site visit to Castle Vale on 28 August.
