RTPI-CIH Planning for Housing Network

RTPI & CIH Logos

We are delighted that you have visited our Network homepage to find out more about the Joint Network that plays an important part in developing policy, knowledge and good practice for the two Institutes - the RTPI & the Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH). Cross-profession co-operation is at the heart of successful planning for housing and the delivery of more and better housing in the right locations is at the top of today's political agenda.


Regular Bulletins keep members up to date with planning for housing issues, publications and events and allow member-to-member exchanges to benefit from the vast range of knowledge and experience across the Network. To receive a sample Bulletin please email the Network Manager. We archive old bulletins on a members only part of the website, however, we are not currently able to provide logins for CIH members. If you are a CIH member of the network and would like an old bulletin, please email the Network Manager.


Through the Network membership we offer events such as study tours, policy consultations and practice insights. The next event, Housing Matters, is being held in partnership with RTPI South East on Thursday 6th September 2018 in Reading.


We are always pleased to welcome new members and we are happy through the Network to address issues that might bring greater clarity to planning for housing in practice. The Network is only open to Members of the RTPI and/or the Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH); for both there is a range of membership options and not all involve a professional qualification.

You can join the Network via this link.
