Our theme for July was Planning for the environment.
We've got a range of interesting topics on for July. We've showcased some exceptional research looking at everything from failing to plan for the adverse environmental effects of major sporting and cultural events, through to the case for metal recovery from abandoned mines. We've also highlighted research focussing on developing a benchmark for green infrastructure.
