Schools Competition 2017

The competition is aimed at GCSE and A-Level Students and involves a site based exercise.  Students are invited to submit their ideas for redeveloping a site in Trafford, Greater Manchester.  This is a real, live project with parts of the site intended to be reveloped in the near future.

The brief includes background details on the site and surroundings, along with instructions for entering.  The deadline for entries is Friday 17 November 2017.

There are two plans included in the brief, one to identify the site's location and one for students to annotate in developing their ideas and proposals for the site.  It is not necessary to visit the site in order to enter the competition. 

Prizes will be awarded in the form of vouchers, details of which can be agreed with teachers/parents once the winners are announced.

Town Planners are regularly asked to appraise sites and advise on suitable land uses, as well consider the issues and options pertaining to a particular site.  The brief is intended to give students an insight into one aspect of town planning.
