Professor Gavin Parker, Director of Planning Programmes in the School of Real Estate & Planning, attended the 2015 UK-Ireland Planning Research Conference at London Southbank University last week. The overarching theme of the conference was Future Planning, Future Cities with the intention of focussing on the practice of planning for place, at different scales and by different actors.
Gavin chaired the Plenary Neighbourhood Planning (NP) roundtable. The session was very well attended and featured a lively debate amongst the panel and audience on the purpose, and inclusivity of neighbourhood planning so far, as well as how to ensure that the energy and innovation generated by NP is captured and passed upwards.
