Gavan Rafferty from Ulster University with one of Northern Ireland’s leading planning consultants, Diana Fitzsimons who has kicked started the three part series with insights into how planners can create value and places for people to live, work, learn and invest.

As the development of Ulster University's £250m Belfast campus continues to change the city skyline, it has launched a seminar series that will highlight the importance of planning and urban regeneration to the economic and social development of Northern Ireland.

Ulster University's seminar series will bring together industry, government, researchers and local communities to stimulate debate and promote best practice in planning, creating and sustaining competitive cities across Northern Ireland.  

The next seminar takes place on 14 April with the speaker, Prof Mark Tewdwr-Jones, talking about his City Futures work.
