The RTPI leads policy debates, establishes new approaches and influences national planning policy. We promote good planning and raise the standards of the planning profession. Everything we do is inspired by our mission to advance the art and science of town and country planning for the benefit of the public. We champion the role of spatial planning planning that gives people a real say in shaping the places where they live and work and ensure that sustainability is at the heart of everything we do.
The RTPI provides a wealth of knowledge about planning including detailed information on key planning topics and core issues, research activities and a range of publications.
