2014 World Town Planning Day


On 8 November, planners from around the world will join together to celebrate planning and the planning profession as part of the 'World Town Planning Day'.

This year, NZPI and its branches have agreed to developing various events and activities for the week of 8 November around the theme of 'Proud to be a Planner'.

  • 04 November 2014, UK | NZPI UK Branch
    Who has the right to the city?
    In the context of rising pressure for new development in London, this event will consider who has the right to the city. Can privately owned publically accessible space can contribute to a more active and friendly environment for Londoners to enjoy? Does the privatisation of London's public realm isolate and exclude more than it benefits?
