Town Planning as a profession emerged from a need to enhance health and opportunity for our growing urban populations. Enhance sanitation and living conditions and enact positive change that tackles urban inequality and provides homes for everyone. But today, our Graduate planners are wondering if Town Planners are still able to tackle this challenge effectively, in whatever role they take up?
In this podcast, two of our ambitious Graduates are bringing together representatives from across the profession to consider this question along with discussing the opportunities and hurdles to delivering social justice through urban regeneration or new development delivery. Where is/has it been done well and how could it be better supported?
Featuring Heather Claridge, Glasgow City Council; Ryan Woolrych, Heriot-Watt University; Keir Hunter and Seth Tyler, Graduate Planners at Barton Willmore, now Stantec. Robin Shepherd, Director (Chair).
