The RTPI can help all members of the public to understand what planning is and how they can get involved with planning in their local area.
The RTPI is involved in a range of activities to help communities to engage with planning system and influence decision-making in their area. This has been particularly successfully achieved by Planning Aid.
The RTPI has produced a number of different resources for schools at a range of levels, aimed at using planning-related activities to teach different aspects of the National Curriculum.
