Sustainable Communities Courses
The Centre is involved with teaching on a number of courses at undergraduate and post graduate level, including the Master’s degree in sustainable planning. Dr Parham runs modules on Urban Design and Conservation and on Community Engagement and the Planning System. These, and other short courses may be found on the University Courses page, or use the links in the table below.
Short courses on GIS systems, Urban Regeneration, Sustainable Planning, Transport Policy and Travel Planning, are among some of the topics offered by the Centre in their series of one to three day courses. Our short courses are intended to help create sustainable communities by providing skills including consultation and place making issues.
The Government's planning reforms represent a significant challenge. Last year's programme of short courses on sustainability helped participants get some idea of the skills needed for an organisation to thrive in the restructured planning system.
Our MSc modular planning courses are taught by leading practitioners and academic staff from the University of Hertfordshire.
