The UK ESPON Contact Point is holding a half-day workshop in
Newcastle on 23 November from 10am-1:45pm.
The workshop will discuss some of the challenges facing urban
and rural England, as well as consider issues at national and
cross-border level. A synthesis of ESPON project findings relating
to urban development in England will be presented, highlighting
projects such as
CAEE. A session on rural challenges will highlight projects
EDORA, and be used to inform a synthesis report on ESPON
findings in relation to rural England.
An RTPI event entitled
Where next for strategic planning? is being held in the same
venue in the afternoon (1:45pm-4:30pm). This event will focus on
why strategic planning is needed, what the RTPI's Map for England
initiative can do to enable policy making at this level, and how
such planning is being dealt with in Scotland via strategic
development plans. Delegates attending the morning session on ESPON
may wish to stay for this.
