The BA (Hons)/MPlan Property Development and Planning provides an opportunity to be involved in the urban renaissance which is transforming our cities. Managing, planning and implementing the development and regeneration of cities is high on corporate and government agendas in the UK and abroad. This course prepares you to enter an interesting and fast-moving industry dealing with economic, financial, legal and design issues, where you will seek and implement innovative property development solutions to urban regeneration problems. Planning and development professionals play a central role in this by co-ordinating and managing multi-agency teams, directing and managing projects, advising on strategy and finance and social and economic implications of new development. There are tremendous opportunities for those who have the skills to promote and manage property development, and at the same time understand urban policy and planning procedures. The course has been developed to meet the requirements of two professional bodies, the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) which have both accredited the course.
