Publication date: 2004
The note examines definitions of equality, the legal responsibilities of planners and the key gender issues affecting spatial planning. It then focuses on specific areas of planning, setting out key facts and good practice.
This Good Practice Note originally coincided 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 incorporated gender, and the European Year for Equal Opportunities. The note built on the work of the RTPI Gender Toolkit published in 2003.
It still has relevance given the gender protected characteristic in the Equality Act 2010.
