OWL-sponsored planning workshop in Bo

Mair Evans and Philip Clarke visited Bo between January and February 2019. The main purpose and focus of the visit was to deliver some further training and support in urban planning for Bo City Council (BCC) as part of the One World Link’s support for the wider work being undertaken on behalf of the Prince’s Foundation “Rapid Urbanisation Toolkit”.

The aim of the three-day workshop was to:-

  1. Review the SE cluster “consistency” of five Wards in Bo including the Eastern Police barracks and the town expansion area.
  2. Understand and bring together the planned interventions and identification of land for community uses:-
    (A) Within built-up areas and
    (B) On land for possible future expansion.
  3. Identify both short term objectives (quick wins) and longer term strategic objectives for the development of this area.
  4. Map out and prepare action plans to safeguard land for development
