Planning

The Division of Geography and Environmental Sciences in the School of Life Sciences has special interests in the following:

  • Urban placemaking within the planning process to help create sustainable communities
  • Delivering transport planning advice to SMEs and larger organizations
  • Social and cultural demography – planning and policy for changing population dynamics
  • Advancing the Charrette as the tool for public participation in planning and design processes

Geographical Information Systems (GIS) analysis has been performed in support of sustainable communities. Sustainable transport planning has been done with groups such as UNO, Eisai and Manor Lodge School as part of their green travel planning process. The group has assisted Stanborough Park in securing the green flag award scheme (good quality urban green space being an important part of the government's urban renaissance agenda).
