Business and enterprise

Planning is part of the solution in helping to drive and enable much needed development, economic growth and job creation, and to give businesses the certainty they need to make investment decisions.

Our viewpoint

Good planning enables and supports economic growth by providing the necessary infrastructure, by allocating land and by working along side various economic development initiatives to enable businesses to expand and invest, as well as supporting communities and protecting the environment. Planners are critical to business development and economic growth.The RTPI will continue to seek to work with ministers to help produce solutions to problems and to secure a workable planning system in the public interest.
