The Town Meeting: the award-winning planning engagement project, one year on
- Published: 04 May 2016
This year, the Idox Information Service is once again providing sponsorship for three of the Royal Town Planning Institute Awards for Research Excellence. In addition to the student and planning consultancy awards, we shall also be sponsoring the Sir Peter Hall Award for Wider Engagement. Last year, this award was won by Dr Paul Cowie from the University of Newcastle’s School of Architecture Planning and Landscape.
In this guest blog post, Paul reflects on his Town Meeting project, which uses theatre to engage communities in planning, and describes the impact of winning the award.
