Chartered Town Planner

Photo - Iram Mohammed - Chartered.jpg Employers recognise the high quality of skills and experience that are held by Chartered Town Planners. They know that they can rely upon the designation as a sign of professionalism. Chartered Town Planners must adhere to a code of conduct that specifies standards of professional ethics.

All Chartered Town Planners are required to maintain a level of professional development throughout their career thus ensuring they remain at the forefront of new developments, legislative changes and the latest knowledge in planning.

"I am very proud to be a member of the RTPI and to promote the planning profession." Iram Mohammed, Major Assets Project Officer, East Dunbartonshire Council
