Website of the month

Planning Research Exchange

The Planning Research Exchange (PRX) is a developing hub for planning research, intended to make research more accessible to policymakers and practitioners in particular. It is run by the Royal Town Planning Institute.

This includes:
Featured Research: Find out more about the latest selected featured research carried out by RTPI accredited schools, as well as the wider research community.

Briefing Papers: These papers provide summaries of research findings on specialist themes to give policy and planning recommendations and to demonstrate the practical implications of these issues.

Project Logs: Project Logs allow researchers, practitioners and others to post a record of their projects, whether completed or still in-progress, to inform others about their work and findings.

Planning Schools Research Directory: Find out about the latest research projects, topics and programmes at schools accredited by the RTPI.

Library Series: The Library Series examines all aspects of spatial planning theory and practice from a comparative and international perspective.

Planning Research Sources: The RTPI follows the latest research, trends and knowledge through various planning journals and online research networks.

We would point out the the RTPI is a pro-growth body and as such adopts the dominant planning discourse of ‘more people, more housing, more growth is good’

Wales Home 

Independent analysis from and about Wales

About WalesHome

WalesHome is a place to find quality writing and good debate from and about Wales. Every week, we aim to provide intelligent commentary and original insight.

WalesHome is essentially an open platform for any and all subjects that affect Wales or are of interest to people who live here. Politics and policy, technology and business, culture and travel all feature here, and more besides.

We’re an open platform for writers, too. Over 200 people have written for WalesHome, from all political persuasions and none. We have regular Columnists and occasional Contributors – but all make WalesHome what it is.

If you have an article that you would like us to feature, drop us a line.

WalesHome articles fall into four very broad categories, with at least one new piece each a week:

Bubble

Politics and policy from both ends of the M4, via county hall and Brussels.

Wales Business

Technology, business, communications – and how we get to grips with it all.

Reflection

Reviews and views about culture, sport, about going out and staying in.

Postcard

 

The world from where our writers are, either in their communities or much further afield.
