Urban Planning Challenge

Blog Header Image School News - 19th Jul 2022

On the 19th of July, the Geography department welcomed UrbanPlan UK, an educational
initiative developed by the UK’s Urban Land Institute. A-Level Geography students worked with UrbanPlan staff and ULI member-volunteers to explore the financial, market, social, political, and design requirements of modern urban developments and urban regeneration. Under the guidance of land use experts, 4 teams of students prepared and pitched their ideas for regenerating the fictional town of Ellham, with each student demonstrating the responsibilities of real roles within urban development proposals.
Congratulations to the Better Futures Team for their excellent winning pitch, and thank you to UrbanPlan and ULI for organising such an insightful event.
