Lord Kerslake to give RTPI Nathaniel Lichfield Annual Lecture

Words: Laura Edgar

The RTPI Nathaniel Lichfield Lecture will be given by Lord Kerslake, who will speak about the positive role planning can play in the delivery of new housing.

Accepting that the planning system, despite recent reform, “isn’t perfect”, Lord Kerslake will put forward a series of ideas based on his experience in local and national government, making the case that good planning and the profession as a whole can make a major contribution to providing the homes needed.

Kerslake will argue that every type of home needs to be built, as well as warning against trying to bypass or undermine the planning system in order to increase the number of new homes.

The lecture takes place on Thursday 26 November at the University of London, in the Darwin Theatre.

Registration begins at 6.30pm, and the lecture is due to start at 7pm.

Tickets are £10 plus VAT. There are a limited number of free tickets available to RTPI students.
