With a possible change in government only days away, a public lecture hosted by the University’s School of City and Regional Planning will be putting urban regeneration under the spotlight.
In a public lecture to be held at the School, Nick Bailey, Professor of Urban Regeneration at the University of Westminster’s School of Architecture & the Built Environment, will consider what lessons we can all learn from the last decade of urban regeneration policy in England.
At a time of economic recession and with the General Election imminent, now is a good time to review the original objectives of the policy approach and to assess the impact it has had on England’s towns and cities.
The lecture will be held as part of the School of City and Regional Planning’s Innovation and Engagement programme and chaired by Dr Gillian Bristow. She says: ‘This is a hugely important time for urban regeneration policy and we’re delighted that Nick Bailey is joining us to provide his invaluable insights into recent policy practice and what lessons might be learnt for the future".
Nick Bailey has many research interests in the fields of urban planning and regeneration and has published a book on Partnership Agencies in British Urban Policy and written a series of journal articles on Local Strategic Partnerships and community involvement. He has a particular interest in governance at the local level, has recently completed an evaluation of neighbourhood management in Westminster with Dr Madeleine Pill, and has recently reviewed the role of community land trusts for Earthscan.
Nick’s other interests include the Egan Review and the skills agenda and more recently he has completed a series of contracts for the Joseph Rowntree Foundation on the development of mixed tenure housing and sustainable communities.
The public lecture will take place on Tuesday 4th May at 5.30pm in the University’s Glamorgan Building on King Edward V11 Avenue in Cardiff. The event is free and open to members of the public. Places can be booked by contacting Evelyn Osborne via email at OsborneE1@cardiff.ac.uk
