Town Planning: A Theological Imperative?

Posted on March 24, 2015 by PLT Staff

Recording of a lecture given by Timothy Gorringe at the Spring Institute for Lived Theology 2006 in Charlottesville, Virginia. Gorringe discusses theological premises invoked in town planning and the structuring of social states. He explores town planning by examining the planning of Plymouth, England, after the town was bombed in WWII, and the town of Milton Keynes.

Excerpt: “[Plymouth] is trying to regenerate itself but one of the problems with the built environment is that if you make mistakes it’s incredibly costly to go back and redo the whole thing. And, where’s the vision going to come from?”
