Katie McClymont is the programme leader and senior lecturer for the MSc in Urban Planning and undergraduate programmes at the University of the West of England. Her research interests centre around planning theory, and its relationship with practice, values and community involvement in planning. Katie’s current research interests focus on cemeteries in cities, Community-Led housing and Low-Impact development and whether policy can deal with spiritual values and a post-secular context. Committed to engaged scholarship in research and teaching: Katie aims to work with local community groups and organisations so that my work, and that of my students is socially beneficial as well as intellectually significant and rigorous.
Katie is currently a board member for Planning Theory and Practice Journal and books reviews editor for the Journal of Urban Regeneration and Renewal.
