Royal Charter, Byelaws and Regulations

The Royal Town Planning Institute is governed, under the provisions of its Royal Charter and Byelaws, through a Board of Trustees with a General Assembly, supported by various regional and specialism-based committees.

The Byelaws ensure that at all times at least two-thirds of the members of the General Assembly will be corporate members.

The role of the General Assembly is (in the words of the Byelaws) to act as a forum for debate about the development of planning policy and practice, the corporate policy of the Chartered Institute and other issues relevant to the objects of the Chartered Institute. 

The General Assembly has a number of other functions which can be found in the Regulations.
