What our last year's winners said

-          "Entering the RTPI NE Awards for Planning Excellence enabled us to really highlight the critical role of planning in infrastructure provision and to celebrate the first class partnership working that is being undertaken in our region to facilitate future growth. It was a fantastic opportunity to reflect on projects that encompassed planners, developers and infrastructure providers working together to support the North East economy." – Richard Warneford, Wastewater Director, Northumbrian Water

-          "We entered the RTPI North East Awards scheme to showcase the Seaham Harbour Marina Water sports Centre project and also to highlight the ongoing regeneration work that has been undertaken in Seaham over the last 20 years.  It also highlighted the high quality professionalism of the people that helped bring the project forward.  We were delighted to win the Chair's Award last October."  Durham County Council
