Planning to House a Nation - Life & Work of Reginald Hammond

0 August 2018

Generally regarded as the first professionally trained town planner in New Zealand, Reginald Hammond helped draft New Zealand’s first Town-planning Act in 1926 before being appointed as the first Director of Town Planning in New Zealand. His career spanned both private practice and public service, where he was a central figure in the formative years of New Zealand’s state housing programme. In memory of his service to the planning profession, NZPI awards the Reginald Hammond Scholarship each year to a student in their final year of study in an NZPI accredited programme. Now Reginald Hammond’s life and career have been chronicled in a newly released book titled ‘Planning to House a Nation’ by Caroline Miller.
