Young Urbanists: Zoning – Learning from Abroad-Canada

November 4 @ 18:30 19:30 GMT

Zonal planning systems have become a reoccurring theme in discussions about radical planning reform in England. But not all zoning systems are the same. This series 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 how elements of the zoning system from that county could be translated into the English system.

Speaker – Jenna Dutton
