Luca Lazzarini, our visiting PhD from Polytechnic of Turin, is making a presentation as part of the CCRI Seminar Series on Thursday 29th June.
His presentation is based on the results of his study period at CCRI, which is due to end on July 15th 2017.
The presentation will look at the main approaches of land-use and spatial planning models with regard to rural areas. The case-study is Bristol City Region and the main focus is on the activity of the West of England Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) in planning. Since their introduction in 2010 in the context of the Localist Reform, LEPs have been playing a crucial role in reshaping the governance of British City Regions and in coordinating public and private investments in several areas of economic development. By examining the dominant spatial narrative of LEP in planning, the presentation aims at underlying the main challenges and limits of this model in dealing with the complexity of rural areas.
The presentation will be chaired by Matt Reed.
The presentation will take place at the University of Gloucestershire Oxstalls Campus in room TC119. It starts at 12.15pm and lasts for one hour.
