Public invited to shape future of RTPI
The Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) has issued an open invitation to any interested parties to shape the future of the institute and the planning profession.
The UK’s leading body for spatial planning and the largest planning institute in Europe with over 25,000 members worldwide has launched a public consultation online to collect a broad spectrum of views to shape its new corporate strategy that covers the ten-year period from 2020 onwards.
Anyone from planners and built environment professionals to national and local governments, politicians, business leaders and members of the public are encouraged to participate.
Respondents will be asked to comment on the proposed vision and mission of the RTPI, as well as its draft objectives, priorities and deliverables.
Victoria Hill MRTPI, RTPI chief executive, said: “Planning has never been more crucial to society, or its future direction more debated. At a time of significant interest in the planning profession, with delivery pressures and immense opportunities and challenges facing the UK, the RTPI is keen to listen to our members and non-members alike on what matters most to them, to ensure our future work in advancing the influence and impact of planning can really benefit the public. I urge all those who care about the places we live and work to take part.”
The proposed vision and mission of the RTPI is “to champion the power of planning to deliver quality places for people” and “to advance the science and art of planning for the benefit of the public”.
The deadline for responding to the consultation is midnight on March 17.
