RTPI-CIH Planning for Housing Network

RTPI and CIH joint logo

We are delighted that you have visited our Network homepage to find out more about the Joint Network that plays an important part in developing policy, knowledge and good practice for the two Institutes - the RTPI & the Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH). Cross-profession co-operation is at the heart of successful planning for housing and the delivery of more and better housing in the right locations is at the top of today's political agenda.


Regular Bulletins keep members up to date with planning for housing issues, publications and events and allow member-to-member exchanges to benefit from the vast range of knowledge and experience across the Network. To receive a sample Bulletin please email the Network Manager. Members have access to an archive of Bulletins and other useful resources.


Through the Network membership we offer events such as study tours, policy consultations and practice insights.


We are always pleased to welcome new members and we are happy through the Network to address issues that might bring greater clarity to planning for housing in practice. The Network is only open to Members of the RTPI and/or the Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH); for both there is a range of membership options and not all involve a professional qualification.

You can join the Network via this link.

Rural housing interest group

The Interest Group on Rural Housing is building up web content on the topic. This specialist content is held in the Network Members' Area. If you too have an interest in planning for rural housing you may like to get involved in the activities of the Interest Group - and receive briefings on matters of relevance and significance.
