Scottish Young Planners' Conference 2018

The Changing Face of Planning: Planning Ahead

Wednesday, 14 March 2018 at 9:30AM - 5:00PM
Technology & Innovation Centre, University of Strathclyde, 99 George St, Glasgow, G1 1RD
RTPI Scotland

The planning profession is about to undergo fundamental changes as a result of the planning review and Planning Bill, once enacted, with implications for the way planners and planning authorities work in the future.  It is becoming all the more important that we are clear about how to plan and what we plan for. But how do we do this? How do we best meet the challenges that will need to be faced and make the most of the opportunities that will arise?

The SYPN 2018 annual conference will look at the potential transformation to the planning system of making better use of technological advances and new approaches to construction and design. It will include case studies of how new ways of working and thinking can help more joined up and productive working across sectors, disciplines and professions.  The event will allow delegates to contribute to the debate and put forward their views on the change we need.
