The Awards for Planning Excellence are the most established and respected awards in the UK planning industry. They aim to recognise exceptional examples of planning and the contribution planners make to society.

Stephen Wilkinson, President of RTPI, commented; “The huge increase in entrants and finalists in this year’s awards reflects the important contribution planners are making to delivering infrastructure and housing. The finalists represent some outstanding contributions to planning which continue to make a positive impact on the environment in the interests of communities across the UK.”
