MTP's Darran Kitchener to present at RTPI North East's Infrastructure Seminar - 11 November 2019

November 8, 2019

Our Associate Director, Darran is excited to present at the Royal Town Planning Institute North East seminar on 'Infrastructure - Policy, planning and delivery at a national, regional and local level' next Monday, at the Business Central in Darlington. 

Darran will be discussing how the planning of new developments, and improvements to existing developments, frequently require the introduction of new or upgraded transport infrastructure. During his talk, Darran will also discuss some recent case studies where collaborative working has both succeeded and failed in bringing about cohesive, policy-compliant, deliverable solutions to specific issues. Darran will also explore where he believes the industry should focus efforts, as we move into a more sustainable future.

Darran will be presenting at 14.40 on Monday, so please do come along and say hello!
