Seize the opportunity to be a new generation place-maker This week saw the launch of Public Practice, a social enterprise aiming to recruit a new generation of place-making planners for local authorities, beginning with London and the South East. Developed through the Mayor of London’s ‘Good Growth by Design’ programme it counts the Mayor, the Local Government Association and developers British Land, Berkeley Group and housing association Peabody among its founding partners. Chief executive and moving force, Finn Williams, explains that the scheme aims to place outstanding candidates from architecture, planning and urban design, offering them an alternative career path focused on shaping places for the public good. Recruitment of the first cohort of 16 ‘Associates’ got under way this week. Williams himself started out as an architect at the Office of Metropolitan Architecture (OMA) before making the switch to planning, first at Croydon Council and then the Greater London Authority.
