Town Planning

This intensive course equips students with the knowledge and skills required for professional practice in town and country planning; it has been designed in response to the national shortage of professional planners so graduates should be particularly well-placed to find exciting employment opportunities; our course content focuses on the evolving planning system, the sustainability agenda, skills for planning practice, and the role of planners in the development of space and place; the eastern region offers a fascinating laboratory for new approaches to planning, including sustainable communities, environmental challenges, new house-building provision and proximity to mainland Europe; the exploration and examination of these contemporary issues helps to develop not only students professional knowledge, but also their ability to analyse complex issues, make sound judgements, solve problems and communicate and act autonomously.
