RTPI Regional Awards for Planning Excellence 2018
We are excited to announce that the RTPI North East Awards for Planning Excellence Awards will soon be aligning with the RTPI's National Awards.
RTPI's regional awards will now launch shortly after this year's national Planning Excellence Awards Ceremony, taking place on the 24th May.
By aligning categories, entry requirements and judging methodologies we aim to attract even more entrants to our awards schemes which each year give organisations a great opportunity to demonstrate their planning credentials on both a regional and national stage.
A further new feature means that overall regional winners will be offered the opportunity to be automatically shortlisted in an appropriate category in the national 2019 Awards. This will result in these winners gaining excellent publicity and recognition as both regional winners and national finalists, and potentially national winners!
In anticipation of the new arrangements, we will launch the North East Regional Awards for Planning Excellence 2018 on 1 June with a closing date of 23 July. Details to follow shortly however if you do you have a project that you would like to submit please start thinking about it now!
Ian Cansfield shares his thoughts for this year RTPI NE Chairs Award; "As this year's Regional Chair, I am keen that we can showcase not only the great work that planners around the region are involved with but particularly how those that are new to the profession are making their mark;
Encouraging Young Planners - This year's Chair's Award will showcase how a newer entrant to the profession has made their mark or someone who has encouraged the involvement of those new to the profession towards bigger and greater projects.
