Place Standard - Keeping it Personal

A RTPI South East Scotland Event

Wednesday, 19 October 2016 at 6:00PM - 8:00PM
The George Washington Browne Room, Central Library, George IV Bridge, Edinburgh
RTPI Scotland

How do the 14 Place Standard criteria relate to our personal experience of place?

The evening will try to address this question in an informal yet insightful way. The three speakers, each with experience of using the Place Standard toolkit on consultation projects, will review the places they live and experience daily. Using visual accounts, they will describe their personal experience of these places and judge them against the 14 criteria in the Place Standard toolkit. All the while they will encourage participants to think afresh about places they know intimately.

  • After the presentations, they will broaden the discussion on the Place Standard and encourage discussion on questions like: How can the Place Standard be used to collate and gather feedback from whole communities?
  • How can the Place Standard best be used as a tool to engage wider communities?
  • How might the online Place Standard toolkit be enhanced?

Speakers: Nick Wright (Nick Wright Planning), Daniel Jeffs and Paul Morsley (Iglu Studio)

Free for RTPI Members/Students. Non-RTPI members are very welcome - £5 charge upon arrival.

Light refreshments will be provided.
