RTPI elects new Fellow

03 July 2014

Keith ThomasThe Royal Town Planning Institute elected a new Fellow last month,  with Keith Thomas joining just 110 others who have demonstrated a contribution to planning and the RTPI above and beyond that expected as an ‘ordinary competent professional planner’.

Fellowship of the RTPI is one of the highest professional attainments possible.

Newly-elected Fellow of the Institute, Keith Thomas, said: “I originally joined the RTPI through Special Entry route to help define a rather eclectic career.  To be elected a Fellow in the centenary year is a truly proud achievement and demonstrates the importance of a multi-disciplinary approach to effective planning. Hopefully I can inspire others to follow suit and continue to demonstrate the diverse experience that contributes to good planning."

Andrew Taylor, Chair of the RTPI’s Board, said: “I’m extremely pleased Keith has been elected to Fellowship. He has an impressive 30 year career spanning the private and public sector which is distinguished his involvement in innovative practice. He’s a leader, having worked more than half his life at Director or Senior Director level. But what for me stands out is Keith’s commitment to the RTPI. He has well over a decade’s experience on RTPI Cymru’s policy panels, is a longstanding RTPI APC Assessor, and is now on the APC advisory board.”
