POS NOVUS - Zoning: learning from abroad - South Africa

Date:4 February 2021 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Zonal planning systems have become a recurring theme in discussions about radical planning reform in England.  But not all zoning systems are the same.  This series of free events takes a deep dive into different zoning systems across the world.  The format for each event will be the same - one guest talking about the country they work in and its zonal planning system.  It will be followed with a focused discussion around those key questions (and other questions the audience may have).  These discussions will be written up to blog posts - setting out how elements of the zoning system from that country could be translated into the English system.
