Young Planners in the West Midlands

New logo

YPwestmids is the activity group (part of the Young Planners Network and attached to the RTPI West Midlands Region) which aims to provide a forum within which aspiring young planners in the area can develop their interest in planning. As young planners ourselves, we feel that we have a very important role to play in promoting planning to people during all stages of their careers. We have previously run a number of successful events, and this year we aim to provide:

  • A point of contact to Young Planners of the West Midlands;
  • Presentations at Universities of the role of planning;
  • Social events including drinks nights, BBQs, pub quizzes in a range of locations across the West Midlands;
  • Seminars on topics of interest in planning;
  • And many more activities!

We would welcome and be pleased to respond to any enquiries you may have! Also please send us an email if you would like to be updated on future social events organised by our group or if you would like to be involved with the running of our group. 

The YPwestmids Chair is Stephanie Eastwood.
