What does being Chartered mean to you?

It is important as a planning academic to gain strong professionally recognised credentials – we don't just work in an ivory tower – our evidence-based research and strategic advice is grounded in practice.  It was also critical for me, as I took up my post as Professor of Planning at Western Sydney University, to have MRTPI. I gained instant credibility.
