16th February 2022 – 100+ years of planning and the ongoing struggle for good placemaking
(ZOOM) PUBLIC MEETING
Wednesday 16th February 2022 7.30pm
Kingston Society member Tony Lancaster presented his take on 10,000 years of city making; with notable contributions form Europe and the USA; more than a century of English planning legislation and the implications of the recent White Paper: Planning for the Future, and how this leads to the formation of a Citizens’ Panel in Kingston to respond to the Local Plan consultation which is to be informed by the new National Model Design Code. Complicated ? Yes it is. Oh, and does the Levelling Up White Paper undo all of this? And of equal importance who is going to pay for it?
