RTPI Greenbelt Symposium

16 March 2015

The Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) is holding a seminar to bring together a number of leading thinkers on the subject of greenbelt development. The issue will undoubtedly be in the inbox of any new government and we are keen to ensure that any future debate is mindful of the social and economic consequences of greenbelt development, rather than being polarised and ideological. With that in mind we have brought together a number of leading thinkers who will provide a diverse range of perspectives on this topical issue.

The speakers are

Tom Papworth, Senior Fellow of the Adam Smith Institute and author of “The green noose- An analysis of Green Belts and proposals for reform”.

Dr Nicholas Falk, Founding director, URBED and winner of the 2014 Wolfson Economics Prize.

Matt Thomson, Head of Planning, CPRE

Dr Tim Marshall, Reader in Planning, Oxford Brookes University.

The event will take place at 4pm in Oxford Brookes University on Tuesday 12th May 2015.
