In this session for Young Planners, Charles Goode of the University of Birmingham will explore the central governance challenge of local authorities meeting housing need whilst managing the Green Belt as a regional growth management policy without statutory strategic planning since 2010. Drawing on the example of the West Midlands, which perhaps faces the greatest strategic planning challenge of meeting Birmingham's unmet housing need and a Combined Authority without strategic planning powers, this session will highlight what lessons can be learnt from strategic planning historically whilst reflecting on how it can be revived in future.
