Planning, Governance and Communities

The Planning, Governance and Communities research subgroup's work covers a broad range of spatial planning and governance issues, focusing on both built and natural environments. The group is interested in how these environments originate, develop and change, the processes by which they are managed, and the stakeholders, organisations and systems involved.
