The nights have drawn in, but it’s impossible as in previous years to nip out for a pint in order to escape Strictly or Celeb (at least it is in Tier 3). A long, inhospitable winter will have to be endured before there is any possibility of approaching normality. Sprinkled on top of this bleakness for planners is that the handling of the White Paper arguably makes planning’s systemic challenges harder to tackle than should have been hoped for.
As anybody familiar with the case of the Headington shark will know, any system of control must make some small place for the dynamic, the unexpected and the downright quirky, which anybody working within the planning system will attest.
In this episode, Sam Stafford discuses funny career stories with:
- David Diggle, Senior Director, Turley
- Vicky Payne, Planning & Urban Designer, Urbed
