About RTPI Northern Ireland

The Irish Branch of the RTPI was formed in 1941/42, the first Chairman was Herbert G Simms ARIBA. It continued like this until 1974 when the Irish Branch was split into 2 autonomous sections North and South. George Worthington was the first Chairman of the Northern Section.

Since this time the committee has been chaired by a varied mix of chartered planners who have collectively worked, with a dedicated committee of volunteers to progress the profession, shape policy and create an environment that will be a legacy for future generations to be proud.

We provide a range of services for our members in Northern Ireland. As well as offering affordable seminars and events for professional development, we arrange social events, keep you up to date through newsletters and provide local information and networking opportunities.
