Planning Question Time 2019
PQT ’19: ‘Public participation in planning: localism, legitimacy and logic 50 years after Skeffington’
This year’s Planning Question time (PQT) will focus on the long running issue of public participation in planning. We mark 50 years since the publication of the Skeffington report on people and planning in 2019 and the roundtable will respond to questions about efforts to engage, how these have worked out and why it is important.
The Panel includes:
- Prof Gavin Parker, University of Reading
- Sue Manns, Sue Manns Associates
- Dr Matt Wargent, University of Reading
- Kat Salter, University of Birmingham
- Jenny Nell, Winchester City Council
Do come prepared with questions for the panel about how to manage and improve public inputs to planning. Including early discussions, local plan inputs, neighbourhood planning, representations over specific developments and wider questions over education and empowering different voices.
