Survey of Planners’ Attitudes, part of Black Country Creative Advantage, Centre for Art,
Design, Research and Experimentation University of Wolverhampton, 2010
Residency at Sandwell Council planning department creating a publication in response to the
work of the planners, the local environment and the council structures.

I spent two weeks in the spatial planning department of Sandwell Metropolitan Council, talking to planners about their working lives, their relationship to the area and their attitudes to planning. I was introduced to their various roles, taken on site visits, given planning documents to study and work space in the office. During my second week, I drew on various comments from my conversations with the planners and fed these back to the rest of the department via a survey board which I set up in the corridor. The planners were invited to comment on the opinions and attitudes of their colleagues by adding their own responses to the board. Findings were published and presented to the BCCA conference.
