The RTPI Awards for Planning Excellence are the longest-running and most high-profile awards in the planning industry. For 40 years they have rewarded the brightest talent in the profession; the teams, the projects and individuals that transform economies, environments and their communities all over the UK and internationally.

On Wednesday 29th April, the team at the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) will be announcing the winners of this year’s RTPI Awards for Planning Excellence which will be hosted by Sasha White QC.

The winners will be announced and RTPI’s prestigious Silver Jubilee Cup winner, awarded annually to the entry judged to be the most outstanding from amongst the category winners.

We wanted to take this opportunity to once again congratulate our winners from last years awards Affordable Homes Monitoring Southwark Council (London Region) and also to thank every one of this year’s finalists but especially those nominated in the category we are sponsoring because of our vested interest in PlanTech; ‘Excellence in Tech within Planning Practice’.
