Breakfast Seminar with Kings Chambers – Can Town Planning still deliver homes fit for Heroes?21/06/19

2019 marks the 100th anniversary of the building programme that followed the end of the Great War which sought to create “Homes fit for heroes”. In the last 100 years slums have been cleared and large council estates constructed. Garden settlements have faded in and out of vogue and the great post town planning movement of the twentieth century sought to rebuild the shattered cities of the country whilst preserving the precious natural and cultural heritage of the nation. 2019 also marks the 70th anniversary of T Dan Smith becoming leader of Newcastle City Council and the catalyst for the brutalist architecture that transformed the City in the 1960s before coming to an end in a mire of corruption and disillusion. NPPF2 is this generation’s effort to try to mould the development which is needed with the protection of that which is precious. This talk will look at whether or not the Policy makers and the Courts have properly equipped this generation of planners to resurrect the aim to create Homes Fit for Heroes, or have we squandered the experience of the last century?”
