At this time of uncertainty the Royal Town Planning Institute is set to call on the next Government to invest in and utilise the expertise of planners to create an inclusive, economically successful and resilient society, during and after Brexit negotiations.
Planners are vital to making places across the UK that have the right jobs, homes and infrastructure. The Government needs to recognise the value of UK planners, invest in educating a skilled built environment workforce, and allow for people with the best skills to continue to come in to the UK to support the construction of the housing and infrastructure we need.
The RTPI will call on the Government to uphold our international agreements on climate change and sustainable development and promote the highest standards for the environment.
RTPI President Stephen Wilkinson said:
“The RTPI - the largest and only UK professional institute for planners that accredits its members as having the highest professional standards - looks forward to working with the new Government when it is formed.”
