RTPI Nathaniel Lichfield Lecture 2018

The RTPI's Annual Lecture 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.


Are planners really the problem?
