Submissions for next year’s RTPI Awards for Planning Excellence – the longest running and highest-profile awards in the industry - have now opened.
For 40 years, these prestigious awards have rewarded the brightest talent in the planning profession - the teams, projects and individuals that have transformed economies, environments and communities across the UK and internationally.
For 2020, a new category has been introduced to recognise the achievements of legal teams working in the field of planning, including law firms, barristers’ chambers and in-house planning law teams. The team must include at least one legal associate member of the RTPI.
RTPI President Ian Tant said:
“The tremendous range of submissions reflect the outstanding contribution to society made by planners. Finalists and winners are celebrated at the Awards ceremony and provide the case studies for our work to raise the profile of planning.
“I am particularly delighted that next year we will also be recognising the legal teams that play such a vital role in guiding clients through the complex and ever-changing UK planning system.”
Winners of all project categories will also be considered for the Silver Jubilee Cup, awarded each year to the project considered best overall.
Submissions for the RTPI Awards for Planning Excellence 2020 can be made until Monday 16 December 2019. Finalists will be announced in February 2020 and the winners will be announced at a ceremony on 30 April 2020 at Milton Court Concert Hall in central London.
