Leeds Beckett City Campus
How do we balance the benefits of green space against the demands of development? Green space is vital for health and wellbeing. Do we need new planning tools to protect and enhance our green future?
Planning policy implies a balance between environmental and economic sustainability but is this balance actually being achieved in practice? If not, then what tools does the planning system provide us to redress this balance?
How can we harness public opinion, how do we campaign for green space, what impact can we have through lobbying and protest?
Planning Adviser, Woodland Trust
How do we strengthen the case for green space in planning policy?
Andrew Wood and Jackie Copley
Planning Managers, Campaign to Protect Rural England Yorkshire & Lancashire
How far has the balance shifted away from environmental sustainability and what planning tools are available to redress it? Are these sufficient? What more do we need?
