Applications are sought from chartered members especially with recent local government experience to chair the Chartered Institute of Finance and Public Accountancy Planning Regeneration Board.
The Planning Regeneration Board supports a subscription website providing advice to local authority finance officers as to how to make best use of planners and planning. It meets twice a year but operates by e-mail in between as circumstances arise. It currently includes representatives from Arup, Lichfields, East Riding Council, Homes England, West Sussex and Maple Teesdale lawyers. The website has developed into a best practice mechanism with easy to understand guides to planning policy, legislation, regulation and practice to maximise the corporate contribution of planning. The Board also organises RTPI events, contributes to relevant research such as that recently prepared on delivery and is currently seeking focus groups with finance officers to make sure planners speak the right language! More importantly, the Board is major supporter of the RTPI CEO's "Planners at the Top Table" Initiative.
Closing date for applications is 21 October 2019. Please send applications to governance @rtpi.org.uk
