RTPI Cymru’s new office in Cardiff was opened last night at a reception attended by RTPI President Ian Tant, Chief Executive Victoria Hills and RTPI Cymru Chair Huw Evans.
The new office is the RTPI’s first ‘bricks and mortar’ presence in Wales, and will provide working space for RTPI Cymru’s three members of staff – Director Roisin Willmott, Policy Officer Rhian Brimble and Administrative Assistant Georgina Roberts.
The office is in Cardiff’s Creative Quarter, a design-led community environment located in a historic landmark location above the Morgan Quarter in the Welsh capital’s City Centre.
After cutting the ceremonial ribbon, Ian Tant said: “This is a really exciting development for RTPI Cymru, which for many years has championed the power of planning in Wales while building links with other built environment professions and organisations.
“The office is in such a dynamic part of Cardiff and I’m sure it will be a great place to work for all our staff – not only the team at RTPI Cymru itself but also other staff visiting from around the UK.”

The opening of the new office came the day before the 2019 edition of the Wales Planning Conference which features speakers including Minister for Housing and Local Government Julie James AM, Richard Bacon MP, Rory Brooke from Savills and Nick Selwyn from the Wales Audit Office.
