RTPI Chief Executive addresses leading industry figures

19 September 2019

In the address, Victoria (pictured at the event, third from left) reflected on her experience of two decades of strategic planning in London, as well as the 'devolution revolution' which has given City Regions across the country the ability to direct their own growth. 

She said: “Strategic planning powers have enabled a directly elected Mayor to set the framework for housing, transport, investment and economic development, construction and  infrastructure. With that framework comes certainty and a plan that has enabled London to retain is place as the leading global city on so many fronts.”
