Spatial planning can only deliver a safe, healthy and sustainable environment for all if it is sensitive to all needs. Developing gender sensitive policies and practices helps everyone.
This Good Practice Note coincides with the introduction of the duty to promote gender equality in Great Britain, the first decade of Section 75 of the Northern Ireland Act 1998 which incorporates gender, and the European Year for Equal Opportunities. The note builds on the work of the RTPI Gender Toolkit published in 2003. The note is essential reading for all those involved in developing and implementing planning policy at the national, regional and local levels and for those involved in development management.
