Past RTPI President Colin Haylock was elected Fellow of the Institute in recognition of his major contribution to the planning profession for the benefit of the public.
Colin Haylock is currently a planning consultant, Visiting Professor and Lecturer at UCL’s Bartlett School of Planning, and a Design Council CABE Built Environment Expert, among other commitments. He was President in 2012 and has been a Member of the RTPI’s Council and General Assembly since 1990.
The Fellowship was conferred in recognition of his contribution to the profession and wider community at a regional, national and international level. His active, voluntary work with the Institute, such as being member of Board of Trustees and Membership and Ethics Committee, shows significant sharing of knowledge and impact on the profession.
Colin Haylock said: “As Chair of the Institute’s Membership and Ethics Committee I am very much aware of the potential for our Fellows to act exemplars and champions for planning practice and expertise. I am greatly heartened by the recent growth in the number of actively engaged Fellows and absolutely delighted to be honoured by the Institute with the award of Fellowship to allow me to join this group.”
Victoria Hills, RTPI Chief Executive, said:
“I would like to extend my congratulations, on behalf of the Institute, to Colin. Fellowship is the highest professional membership grade available to a planner. It recognises exceptional candidates after extensive peer review for the excellence and impact of their work. It also further validates that planning is a prestigious and valued profession for which our fellows are the best ambassadors.”
