British Planning as a Colonial Legacy

Activity: External talk or presentationOral presentation


• The use of town planning as a tool of governmental or administrative control in countries colonised by Britain has been researched and documented. However, the ways in which planning's role as a colonial tool has shaped planning in Britain has had seemingly little to no attention in research. This session is to present and explore this line of thinking as part of my attempt to understand how my own research on contemporary planning in England has been shaped by colonialism. And includes an overview of some of the planning literature I’ve come across thus far.
