Participation and Planning NW

Effective Community Engagement and Grassroots Campaigning

Wednesday, 04 September 2019 at 5:00PM - 9:00PM
Studio 1, Manchester Art Gallery, Mosley St, Manchester, M2 3JL
RTPI North West

From Sherry Arnstein to neighbourhood plans, public participation and proactivity in the planning process are complex issues which lead to varying degrees of satisfaction with the built environment. Join us for a series of presentations and debate from the perspectives of the academic, public, private and third sectors, which will engage with topics including community campaigning, neighbourhood plans, collaborative design and consultation.

This event is in collaboration with Manchester Art Gallery, whose summer exhibition, ‘Get Together and Get Things Done’, runs from 17 May to 29 September 2019, and poses the question: What brings people together, from protest to partying? What is the use of a crowd?

Refreshments will be provided.

Compere: Vicky Payne (URBED)
