Planning for a cohesive and diverse community

Thursday, 05 April 2018 at 9:30AM - 4:00PM
Rose Bowl, Leeds Beckett University, Portland Crescent, Leeds, LS1 3HB
RTPI Yorkshire

Do you have the skills and knowledge to plan to include?

Do you have the technical know how to judge whether a planning proposal will provide an inclusive environment or not? Do you know whether you overlook the critical detail that will make a building easy and comfortable to use?

Planners, through the critical role we play in planning and shaping our towns and cities, have a statutory duty to ensure that disabled, minority and low-income groups have the same equal opportunities to live full and independent lives. We as planners must respond, along with all other built environment professionals, and ensure that we no longer allow barriers to inclusion to be designed, built or maintained. 

There are many challenges for planning in relation to diversity, housing, tolerance and community safety.  This conference will explore the issues of diversity, inequality and community cohesion and reflect on ways to support all communities.
