RTPI Scotland Annual Conference

Athletes VillageChanging Places - Collaborating to make a difference

1 October 2019, The Emirates Arena, Glasgow

The new Planning Act, the Place Principle, the Place Standard and community planning show that public policy and planning practice in Scotland is aiming to become more place-focused and collaborative. Given this, the conference will take a detailed look at how place-based approaches are being undertaken, how they are impacting on the round, how they are coordinated and delivered and how stakeholders have been engaged in their development. These will explore issues including economic growth, design, regeneration, health, travel and infrastructure. It will look to take a granular approach to explore in detail how this is being developed in Glasgow, and especially in the East End through presentations and walking tours. The event will also explore place-based, collaborative approaches being taken forward in a range of settings across the UK and Ireland.
