Retired membership is for members who have retired completely from planning practice. Chartered Members, Legal Members, Legal Associates and Associates are eligible to transfer to this class.

Retired members are exempt from the requirement to maintain their Continuing Professional Development (CPD). This means that they can no longer practice planning or provide professional planning advice even in the capacity of a volunteer. Retired members can give their personal opinion or comment on a local matter in a personal capacity. 

Retired members use (Rtd) next to their designation once they retire. For example, retired Chartered Town Planners use MRTPI(Rtd).
