Event Overview

This talk will consider the nature of the new spatial planning agenda being forged in Scotland. It is based on a publication of the National Planning Framework that sets the context for planning decision making by a host of protagonists involved in regional and local governance. The discussion will consider the case for such an approach, locate it in contemporary planning theoretical debates and consider the practical implications for space, place and development in Scotland.
