Meeting the challenge: how will planners shape the future?
Taking place on Tuesday 24th June in Central Hall Westminster, the Planning Convention 2014 asked what are the big challenges on the horizon that will shape the next 50 years?
It addressed major issues including how to deliver quality as well as quantity in housing, how we build healthier communities and how to overcome the real constraints upon economic growth, such as infrastructure and market failure. Expert practitioners discussed what these challenges will mean for the quality of life for communities in different parts of the UK.
