Planning for demographic change

West of Scotland Chapter Event

Thursday, 27 February 2020 at 6:00PM - 8:00PM
Committee Room No 9, 18 John St, Glasgow G1 1JQ
RTPI Scotland

What changes are projected for Scotland’s population over the next few decades? What are the challenges for planners in addressing these? And what are the opportunities? Demographic change is one of the main factors that define the issues facing planners over the coming decades, so understanding what lies on the horizon is crucial.

This event will consider what the most recent demographic data tells us about Scotland’s future population and the planning implications across the West of Scotland, focusing on housing and health & equalities perspectives. The following speakers will be providing their knowledge and expertise on what promises to be an engaging and thought-provoking evening:

  • Dr Esther Roughsedge - Head of Statistical Promotion and Analysis at National Records of Scotland, with 15 years’ experience of demographic statistics
  • Joe Larner, Homes for Scotland - Principal Planning Advisor at Homes for Scotland covering the West of Scotland region
  • Bruce Whyte, Glasgow Centre for Population Health – Co-Lead of GCPH’s ‘Observatory Function’ and comprehensive public health information programme

6:00pm for 6:15pm start
