RTPI Yorkshire is governed by two committees:


  • Planning Policy: Process and Practice

    21 March 2019, Leeds

    In an increasingly complex regulatory and political environment, how can planning policy professionals contribute to the delivery of spatial, sustainable and inclusive planning? Through a range of perspectives and drawing on recent developments, this conference will consider the legal, procedural and practical dimensions to the preparation and implementation of planning policy.

    Confirmed speaker

    • Steve Quartermain - Chief Planner, Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG)
  • Hamburg Study trip 2019

    Hamburg is one of Germany’s and Europe’s most dynamic cities, with many ambitious and inspiring policies and projects of relevance to planning and regeneration practitioners.
