Just out: The first of the Royal Town Planning Institute’s centenary papers in the Planning Horizons series. Thinking Spatially: Why places need to be at the heart of policy-making in the twenty-first century. Illustrated, closely-argued and fully referenced, the paper shows that by thinking spatially the connections and the solutions to the challenges become more apparent. The central message – a call to action for everyone involved in public policy – is that policy needs to be more integrated and strategic through a better understanding of the differences between places.
