Transforming Castleford - Playing the "Long Game"

Tuesday, 05 July 2016 at 9:30AM - 12:30PM
Castleford Civic Centre, Ferrybridge Road, Castleford WF10 4JH
RTPI Yorkshire

(Please note that this Seminar is now on 5 July and not on the date originally given.)

Following on from the 2015 programme where local authorities showcased their planning achievements in selected towns and cities, in this year's RTPI Yorkshire low cost seminar programme we will be working with planning consultancies and local authorities in some of the smaller towns within Yorkshire. We will assess what has happened to the place over the last 50 years, what has worked there, whilst also looking forward to the future.

Castleford imageCastleford is well positioned for growth and there are ambitious plans for its future. This seminar will consider the town in the context of wider regeneration proposals for the Aire Valley Corridor and The Five Towns, exploring issues associated with politics and the economy which mean that the successful transformation of Castleford will need to be a "long game".


There are a limited number of free places available for full time students and Planning Aid volunteers - you can book one of them online below if you are an RTPI member, otherwise please contact 

This seminar is kindly supported by Spawforths.
