Planning and development of new and regenerated areas is a fundamental activity in providing the built context and infrastructure for the spaces and places in which we live, work and undertake our leisure and recreation. It should be done well; well planned, well designed and well executed, offering more than just a functionally effective experience.
This course examines this challenge in the context of current economic conditions, public expenditure cuts and the governments belief in the power and liberating values of localism. It also develops knowledge, understanding and skills relevant to contemporary planning and development with an emphasis on communities, localism, urban design and quality housing-led development. The course offers the opportunity to: • become better equipped to respond to, and understand, the government's localism agenda and current changes in the planning system; • develop advanced knowledge and skills in urban design; • undertake urban design evaluations for proposed new residential developments; • gain an up-to-date understanding of current changes in the planning system; and • allow flexible study for full-time working practitioners.
A minimum 2.2 honours degree or equivalent in a relevant subject area and relevant current employment.Applications are welcomed from mature candidates with non-standard qualifications but with relevant experience.
