13th European Biennial of Towns and Town Planners 2019 | Planning Fringe

EVENT ORGANISED BY: Plymouth City Council

This year Plymouth will be hosting the 13th European Biennial of Towns and Town Planners 2019, themed ‘Planning on the Edge’ . As a precursor to this international event Plymouth City Council, who is a partner in the biennial, will be curating the Planning Fringe. This event aims to explore the fringes of planning practice and especially how it engages with wider society. It will attempt to formulate answers to questions such as:

  • How does planning engage with current and future generations? What can we do to improve this interaction?
  • How do we see the profession evolve and make it fit for the difficult questions which lie ahead?
  • What is the role of design within planning?

The aim of this fringe event is to provide an independent gateway into the issues Plymouth will face now and in the future, to actively engage the general public and associated professions with the purpose of the planning profession and to create a greater diversity in the people involved in planning.

See the event programme here.

The Glass-House will be doing an interactive session to explore engaging diverse stakeholders in design and placemaking.  The session will challenge traditional views on consultation to consider how effective community engagement can unleash local leadership, help build social capital and create better and more sustainable places.
