RTPI Nathaniel Lichfield Lecture 2014

The governance debate

The Annual Lecture took place on Tuesday 18 November 2014 and was attended by 162 people. Alison Nimmo CBE, Chief Executive of the Crown Estate chaired the lecture which saw Professor Tony Travers lend his expert insight on how citizens may be affected by future trends in city and county governance.

The politically stimulating lecture explored many fundamental issues and possible solutions on how we shape our governance structures and the role of planners over the next twenty years.  The lecture was aligned at a time when the debate on who and how we are governed was on the political centre stage across England, Wales, Northern Ireland, Ireland and Scotland.

The lecture was once again generously supported by Dalia Lichfield and hosted at University College London.
