Planning for Drones

In this episode of The Real World by Davitt Jones Bould, Lizzie sits down with Gill Eaton, Urban Planner at Iceni Projects and James Bircumshaw, Infrastructure Manager at Skyports, to delve into the world of drones.

The UK drone space is rapidly expanding, and so Gill and James discuss the key considerations, with a special focus on planning, in anticipation of the near future with electrical air taxis or EVTOLA (Electrical Vertical Takeoff Landing Aircraft). The current policy vacuum encourages authorities to be forward-thinking and innovative, especially with regards to how sustainability can be integrated in to their local infrastructure.
