Hugh Daglish BA (Hons) MTP MRTPI, Partner at ID Partnership said;

“ID Partnership entered the RTPI awards as they recognise excellence in planning and help showcase the skills, work and ability of ID Partnership working in partnership with clients to achieve good quality placemaking. 

The awards are well known in the North East and nationally with an audience which extends beyond town planners to include architects, local authorities, developer, RSLs and other development related businesses.   

The opportunity to showcase the work of ID Partnership amongst fellow peers in the development and construction industry is very important to IDP and provides the opportunity to demonstrate a strong commitment to improving neighbourhoods and delivering sustainable, inclusive and well considered places.  It highlights to clients the importance and emphasis that organisations such as the RTPI place on these elements.

ID Partnership has won previous RTPI awards and has benefited from the positive publicity and recognition this has brought.  The practice hopes to encourage and inspire future generations of planners and built environment professionals to work with local communities to achieve quality outcomes and our award for the Exemplar Neighbourhood SPD epitomises this in respect of the engagement work with younger people about the places the want to live and spend time in.”
