Masterclass: Tools of proactive planning
Time & Location
About The Event
Understanding, developing and using the tools of proactive planning; masterplans, design guides, design codes and development briefs.
A continued dialogue from the first masterclass, that considers what it means to practice ‘proactive planning’, this event will develop a detailed understanding of the relevant tools, such as policy documents, codes and guides, council-led initiatives, design commissions and briefs, land assembly powers, participatory exercises, design charrettes, and masterplans. The considerations for, and value of each tool will be explored by those involved both in using, preparing and commissioning these tools.
