The RTPI East of England Regional Management Board is pleased to announce that John Dagg has been appointed East of England Chair for 2024.

"I am very pleased to be taking the Regional Chair for this year. Anthony Collier did excellent work in 2023. He remains active on our committee. We are all volunteers from a range of backgrounds in planning: we aim to promote and support the profession in the Region, complementing the work of the RTPI at national level.

"As in previous years our focus in 2024 will be delivering CPD opportunities - both in person and on-line events. We aim to help in keeping our Members in the Region up to date,  also providing opportunities for discussion and networking.  We run the annual regional awards for planning excellence.  For Young Planners we have an active Committee with their own programme of events - this year organising the National Young Planners' Conference in Cambridge.

"We are very much aware of the challenges facing professionals due to changes in the legal and policy framework and deficiencies in funding of the planning service. Added to this are the uncertainties and lack of action caused by political attitudes to planning issues.

"We hope that you will take an interest in our work during 2024 and attend events. If you would like to know more about the RTPI at our regional level and could consider joining in do contact our Regional Coordinator Fiona Fowell: [email protected]."
