Planning is facing powerful challenges – professionally, intellectually, practically – in ways arguably not seen before. In this editorial we examine whether we have witnessed the withering away of regional planning. Our argument is that planning remains integral to the future of regional studies, but not in the form it once took. We argue for new approaches to planning regional futures. More broadly, this editorial and the Planning Regional Futures issue is an intellectual call-to-arms to engage planners (and those who engage with planning) to critically explore what planning is, and should be, for in how we plan cities and regions.
