Activity report for 2012-13

July 25, 2013

During the academic year 2012/13 the Bartlett School of Planning brought its experience of cooperation with community groups in London closer to the mainstream of teaching and research. About 40 students, ranging from undergraduates to PhD students, took on assignments in support of community, neighbourhood and London-wide organisations. The work related to all three levels of London planning: the London Plan covering the whole GLA area, Borough plans and the new Neighbourhood Planning activities recently extended through the Localism Act. A detailed report of the year’s work is available here.

We have prepared a document (“Protocol”) designed to help students, staff and action groups to get the most out of these collaborations and avoid the pitfalls. Do read this if you are thinking of taking part.
