UCL continues its work with the Just Space Network and the following activities are under way.
1. A taught module for UCL Masters Students Community Participation in City Strategies led by Michael Edwards, Jennifer Robinson and Richard Lee. This benefits from a ‘dissemination’ grant from the UCL Public Engagement Unit which supported earlier work on the London Plan.
2. Preparations for some public seminars in collaboration with King’s, other London universities and the JS Network – about alternative strategies for London planning. Details shortly.
3. With the (non-financial) support of DCLG, the Bartlett School of Planning is making contacts via the Just Space Network to help students who want to offer voluntary help and support to community groups in or near London on neighbourhood planning. Interested students or recent graduates should contact Michael Edwards at the Bartlett. The Just Space Network Protocol on university/community cooperation is being used to guide this work.
