Where to for planning?
In this closing session, chaired by Timandra, Thomas Sieverts, Alan Hudson, Alan Moran, and Michael Owens will discuss where they believe the future of development control is to be made. In Britain land use and spatial planning has maintained a separation from the technical building control system, but that disengagement need not persist. Is planning to be more of a positive institution, better devoted to the encouragement of the production and renewal of the man-made environment, or more of a negative force, attempting to contain social aspirations for space and opportunity? Is the built environment the negative that public planning must positively regulate? In a fast developing world, is it too simplistic to expect land use plans to reflect complex political and economic change?
