Veronica Barry

Doctoral researcher

Veronica is working on the relationship between spatial planning, food policy and health & wellbeing.  She has studied the Black Country boroughs of Dudley and Sandwell, and neighbouring Solihull, in detail and is exploring food planning as a system, rather than the previous dominant focus on individual projects.  Projects are ephemeral, often spurred by particular individuals and fading when they leave: but the need for food security is permanent.
