On October 27th, Professor Tuna Tasan-Kok, Professor of Urban Governance and Planning at the University of Amsterdam and Chair of UGoveRN, delivered a Public Lecture at the Bartlett School of Planning, UCL. The lecture was titled ‘Rethinking Property-Led Planning Through Spatial Governance Landscapes’.
Today’s metropolises are shaped by property investment, global financial flows, and public policy regulations. These complex spatial governance landscapes are formed by interactions between dynamic networks of actors and regulations within a property-led planning system. However, the link between these scattered and rather uncoordinated investments that shape the built environment, and fragmented regulations that contain contradictions, discrepancies, and diverse perceptions on property investors stays vague. Due to this ever-increasing complexity, tomorrow’s regulators and scholars must be equipped with new skills, perspectives, and data to unravel and navigate these property-led landscapes and better organize interactions within these dynamic spatial governance landscapes.
In her lecture, Tuna Tasan-Kok builds on fresh observations and data, expanding on how future scholars and regulators could work to better read and navigate these dynamic landscapes by tracing property investors and regulator interactions within spaces and across time.
