On assignment – blogging slow down
I have embarked on a research assignment for the University of Waikato looking in the critiques of the Planning system and its effects on housing.
Specifically I will be:
“Capturing the ways the planning systems and planners have been criticised so far, and in particular link to the evidence (or not) that this is based upon. ”
This is based on:
“National Science Challenge on housing. Specifically, a part looking at the role of planners and the planning system in enabling or inhibiting desired government outcomes.”
As this assignment will be near full-time blogging activity will be reduced for duration of the assignment (about seven weeks). Big issues that crop up will still get blogged on but for now my main focus is with this research task. I might put out the call for some help and collaboration with this assignment so be on the look out in case 😉 .
My thanks to Professor Iain White – Professor in the Department of Environmental Planning at the University of Waikato for the research opportunity.
