- Collaborating with other societies.
-Meet ups, to ask you guys what you would like to do or see! As this society is for YOU.
- Networking events, talks and debates.
-Site trips, meaning viewing inside or other related activities.
- We might have various trips, including a trip to a surprise city! (destination will be revealed once time is closer)
There are a several courses in the Built Environment which have elements of planning involved such as Architecture, Engineering, Law, Geography and even History!
We exist to offer opportunities for anyone interested in the discipline and practice of planning and its impact on the built environment. From lectures, organised group activities, social events, networking opportunities and industry insights, the programme of events available to member’s aims to reflect the broad and varied nature of spatial planning as well as provide members with insights and contacts which will enrich their experience, understanding and ultimately, practice in the future.
