A ResPublica public panel debate with Greg Clark MP, Minister of State for Decentralisation and Cities
ResPublica, in collaboration with the RIBA, has hosted a panel debate to
discuss the findings of our latest paper entitled 'Planning Places,
Building Communities'. The publication explores the potential evolution
of the planning powers introduced through the Localism Act and the
structures and resources that might be developed to make them a success.
The ‘bottom up’ approach to planning introduced through the
Localism Act promises to create a new kind of design and planning
process and a different relationship between professionals, communities
and local authorities, based on genuine collaboration and partnership.
The paper explores how the localism agenda can be taken
to the next level, to ensure the best outcomes from the process and the
potential for a new paradigm of community driven local action.
