LINKING SPATIAL PLANNING AND COMMUNITY PLANNING – A WAY FORWARD
There has been a perception that there is a disconnect between the processes, outcomes and priorities of spatial planning and community planning. RTPI Scotland has undertaken research exploring if there is a disconnect, and if so, how we can address this, and what the benefits of a greater connection between processes might be for all parties. The first phase of the research looked at the opportunities and barriers to better linking spatial and community planning and identified 10 recommendations. The research report was published in March 2015 and can be viewed on the RTPI website – Linking People and Places: Spatial and Community Planning.
The second phase of the research, funded by Scottish Government, is drilling down to look at practical examples of linking spatial and community planning. RTPI Scotland has been working with DPT Urban Design and Nick Wright Planning to produce case studies of three areas (East Ayrshire, Edinburgh, and Highland) and a “route map” to support better linkages.
We invite you to a free event where we will outline the research, discuss the implications this has for planning and community planning practice, and explore what needs to be done to take this forward.
