Mid Suffolk District Council - Town Planning Activity

Town Planning Activity

This activity is designed to introduce the concept of Town Planning and sustainable growth.  It is a multi-discipline group activity that delivers a real-world example of the way academic skills are combined in employment.


The activity combines a reading comprehension and decision-making exercise, with a creative and enjoyable map-based drawing task.  The outcome is that students analyse information, make and justify decisions based on that information, and present their solutions/proposals in graphic and written format.


This can be delivered either as a half day session or as a project which the group can work on over a period. This could be supported with either drop in or remote mentoring support  and a follow up session at completion
