Four times a year our General Assembly members come together in person to debate Planning policy and practice. They discuss important issues relating to Planning and the Institute. 

The Assembly consists of both elected and appointed representatives. 

Key debates from recent meetings:

In 2023 a series of debates were held by the General Assembly featuring discussions on strategic planning, digital planning and artificial intelligence (AI), the future of the green belt, and how the profession can self-promote to reduce abuse and harassment. We've now documented all those debates in this report written by RTPI Immediate Past President Sue Bridge FRTPI.
