The RTPI has launched a new resource for its members to keep them informed about the UK General Election. Watch the introductory You Tube clip, featuring the RTPI Chief Executive, Trudi Elliott below to hear more.
The General Election on 7 May is the first in a series of elections in Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and Ireland due in 2016.
Members can find out how the RTPI has been working with politicians on key planning policy issues, what the political parties are saying about planning and what the RTPI considers important for influencing future policy.
With less than 100 days to go before the next General Election on 7 May, the RTPI has provided a new information hub. We hope it will be your first port of call in the months ahead for election news as it relates to planning and the built environment. The resource will be added to over time and include:
Information about the General Election, process and timeline
RTPI policy and positions, including our asks of government and planning solutions to key issues
What the political parties are saying with links to key party documents setting planning related policies as they are published
How members can find out who their prospective parliamentary candidates are and advice on engaging with them
What the law says about charitable status (and how the RTPI can operate in the pre-election period)
The pages will be updated regularly as more information becomes available, such as when the party manifestos are published, expected in early April.
