Steve Quartermain CBE to celebrate launch of MA Urban Planning and Resilience

To celebrate the launch of our new MA Urban Planning and Resilience course, Steve Quartermain CBE, the Chief Planner at the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government, is coming to the University of Kent to meet with students on the new masters programme, and to talk about the latest developments in policies in planning.

Steve began his career as a trainee planner having studied geography at Durham University. He took a postgraduate qualification and subsequently became an RTPI member in 1982. His early career was mostly in Development Management in Epping Forest and Dartford, before he moved to Yorkshire to take on the role of Head of Development Control, and in 1988 he was made Head of Planning.

The event is open to all current students, and all who are interested in studying on the new MA Urban Planning and Resilience programme, and will take place on Wednesday 21 November from 10.00 – 11.30 in Marlowe Lecture Theatre 1.
