Development Planning

This programme aims to provide students with the knowledge of the principles and practice of town and country planning. It is designed chiefly for those wishing to become chartered town planners. The programme is underpinned by a 'development planning' specialism which sees planning as a process of engagement with development processes at all levels, from the local to the International. This specialism is built around 3 other thematic 'pillars' that explore the ways in which development planning interacts with 'economy', 'environment' and 'place'. The programme allows students to develop in-depth knowledge of a selected area of development planning.
