With politicians asking questions about the value of higher education, and some universities fearing financial ruin as a result of Covid-19, time to revisit one of my 2002 columns for Planning.
My column in Planning in 1987, has a contemporary feel in 2020 as issues of mass unemployment and Council cuts come to the fore once again.
How to have your say in the planning system.
A busy week ahead. I have a number of online events coming up, which may be of interest to followers of this website.
The film The Square is about more than the excesses of contemporary art. It explores the conditions on which people are able to live in cities.
The British film Bait, released in 2019, should be of interest to planners and urbanists internationally for the issues it raises about community and economic development.
Local history and a trip to a Planning Committee meeting. The second part of my Diary as published in Planning on 11 December 1987.
My "Diary" article in 1987 records the formation of the Association of European Schools of Planning, AND of the Scottish Torquay United Supporters Club (which has not proved as long-lasting).
In a week when my term of office as President of the Royal Town Planning Institute came to a close, I also faced being made redundant.
