Are we at the dawn of a new planning era where UK cities can deliver ‘Smart Planning’? This seminar will explore how the Brownfield Land Registers (BLR) could be the digital platform for the UK to think more creatively about our towns and cities, to create compact, walkable and vibrant communities.

Based on a cross-sector panel discussion the seminar will explore how Local Authorities, Government and innovative technology could utilise the BLR platform to take our urban environment into the digital era.
