The planning system has an important role to play in promoting and sustaining diversity and inclusion in communities. However, is it currently rising to the challenge and, if not, what can those in the planning industry do to make a difference?

In this episode, Charlotte Dyer, an Of Counsel in the HSF London Planning Team, chats with Fiona Sawyer, the Professional Support Lawyer for the team, about the impact that the built environment can have on diversity and inclusion, and the role that the planning system, developers and planning professionals can play in promoting and sustaining diversity and inclusion in communities.
