RTPI Nathaniel Lichfield Lecture

The RTPI's Annual Lecture, taking place each November, is widely anticipated and attracts a large and diverse audience. A generous endowment for the lecture was received from Dalia Lichfield in 2011 and this has ensured that the particular contribution of the late Professor Nathaniel Lichfield, in developing approaches to planning that cross boundaries and integrate different fields of thinking and research, is also reflected and celebrated.

Professor Christine Whitehead HonMRTPI, Emeritus Professor of Housing Economics at LSE gave the 2018 lecture.

Professor Whitehead gave an economist's view of the housing crisis. The lecture examined the current planning reforms, whether they work to boost the supply of homes, and the role the planning profession play's in this.
