Where next for strategic planning? (1)

Friday, 23 November 2012 at 1:45PM - 4:30PM
Centre for Life, Times Square, Newcastle upon Tyne
Fully Booked

A half-day event is being held in Newcastle on 23 November 2012 from 1:45pm-4:30pm to discuss strategic and sub-regional planning.

Using a recently published book edited by Corinne Swain, Tim Marshall and Tony Baden (English Regional Planning 2000-2010: Lessons for the future) as the basis of the event, discussions will centre 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.

Those attending this event may wish to come to a workshop taking place at the same venue in the morning (10am-1:45pm) which will focus on using new evidence to deal with development challenges in rural and urban England. Overcoming rural, urban and cross-border challenges - Evidence from the ESPON Programme will also consider governance and cross-border issues.
