Course description

This course is designed to equip final year planning students with advanced-level skills and expertise so they can contribute competently to the more complex professional situations they are likely to face in the workplace. It will build on previous courses, especially those concerned with planning law; and will cover matters such as making and assessing complex development applications for a variety of types and scales of land use (residential, commercial, master plan, etc), writing and using planning codes, given expert evidence in court, the role of planners in multi-professional teams, dealing with complex heritage, landscape and aesthetic planning issues, and producing professional reports. There will be a strong component of professional ethics and civic responsibility in the course. The course will make extensive use of up-to-date case studies.
