Thank you for joining Women in Planing and Farrells at our first event of 2018 – 10 January

Thank you to everyone who joined Women in Planning London and Farrells at our first event in the “When Women Plan London” series titled “Unlocking Delivery through good place-making and design” on the 10 January 2017.

We are very pleased that so many of you (circa 70) made it and of course a big thank you to Farrells for hosting and sponsoring the event.

The event was introduced by Rachael Herbert, our Vice Chair of the London Committee.

Sir Terry Farrell CBE, principal of Farrells and Royal Town Planning Institute Gold Medal winner, gave us a presentation on City Making and explained why there was a need for creative and thoughtful spatial and physical planning – not just reactive, policy-led planning.

Rachael Rooney, Strategic Planner Manager of the Greater London Authority, then followed with a presentation on the challenges currently facing London and how the Mayor seeks to combat these through the draft London Plan in terms of good growth principles and the Good Growth by Design Programme and Advocates.

The event topic was then discussed by our esteemed panel:

Led by Chairperson Katerina Karaga, Senior Urban Designer of Farrells.

One the big take homes from the panel discussion was how integral the people/community element is to place-making.

Who is the “place” going to attract and serve? Why are these people critical to the long-term success of the “place” and wider community? And how can the area be best designed to accommodate their existing and future needs?

We look forward to seeing you all at our next event. Details to follow soon.
