Dr Iqbal Hamiduddin profile picture
  • Associate Professor in Transport Planning and Housing
  • The Bartlett School of Planning
  • Faculty of the Built Environment
My work focuses on the production and on-going development of urban and rural places. My research draws widely from the fields of transport planning, planning for housing, land use planning and spatial governance and I am particularly interested in the social and environmental impacts of housing and transport policies and ‘alternative’ modes of housing production including self-build and custom housebuilding.

Research Summary

Since joining the Bartlett School of Planning in 2007 I have led or been a member of more than a dozen research projects spanning the fields of transport, planning for housing, governance of planning, and rural development, with funding from a diverse range of organisations including the European Union, Economic & Social Research Council, Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and the UCL Grand Challenges programme. From these I have published more than 70 articles, reports, chapters and conference papers. Recent major outputs include the edited book Self-Build Homes (with Michaela Benson, UCL Press, London) and the co-authored books New Money in the Countryside (with Nick Gallent, Meri Juntti, Nicola Livingstone and Phoebe Stirling; Palgrave, London) and Introduction to Rural Planning (with Nick Gallent, Meri Juntti, Sue Kidd and Dave Shaw; Routledge, London). I am an Editorial Board member of the scientific journal, Sustainability.


I have been Course Director for the MSc Housing & City Planning since 2017 and I teach on the BSc Urban Planning, Design and Management programme, and MSc Transport & City Planning. I routinely guest lecture at universities across London, including at Westminster, South Bank and Liverpool (London campus). In 2015 I spent time as a Visiting Scholar at the Department for Engineering, University of Wuppertal, Germany. Other Invited international engagements include the NNSF/British Council China-UK Urban Resilience Workshop, Wuhan, China (2019), Korean Ministry of Transport Integrated Transport Conference, Seoul and Ulsan (2017), Better Places Conference, London (2016) and as a Panellist at the Future Spaces Foundation, London (2015).

I also undertake public engagement activities to discuss planning matters with a wider audience. Examples include invitations to speak at the Bradford Literature Festival, England (2019), Grand Designs Live’ event in Birmingham, England (2015+2016) and media appearances that include ABC Radio’s ‘Rear Vision’ programme on MegaCities (2018), and regular online contributions to the National Custom and Self Build Association (NaCSBA) and Scottish Urban Regeneration Forum, and expert briefings to the BBC and Buzzfeed on sustainable urban planning matters.
