We conduct and commission research as a key part of our commitment to advancing the art and science of planning.

As a professional membership body, a charity and a learned institute, we’re in the prime position to understand the planning practice needs of professional planners in the UK, Ireland and globally. As such, since global issues are not always predictable, well-planned research does not always reflect current issues but we endeavour to develop new ways to review the findings from our own work and the work of others and synthesize key information for the benefit of RTPI members.

Our practice advice series provides succinct summaries of information and case study material for planners related to particular planning topics, research or professional skills and behaviours.

Please note: All previous RTPI research, advice or good practice notes not found on our hub is considered cancelled and have been withdrawn.
