WESTIR Limited attended a professorial lecture by Professor Nicky Morrison titled ‘Planning, Politics and Power’ at Western Sydney University in October 2019. The professorial lecture was part of Western Sydney University’s Research Week 2019. The professorial lecture looked at four planning case studies from Professor Morrison’s career: Cambridge (England), Shenzhen (China), Accra (Ghana) and now Western Sydney (Australia). It explored the challenges that urban planners face in managing economic, social and environmental priorities and how they reconcile competing stakeholder expectations and conflicting interests. A brief summary of the lecture is outlined in the report below.
