The Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) is holding a consultation on the RTPI Code of Conduct and Complaints Procedures.

The RTPI is asking its members for their views on the code of conduct, which, the institute said, has a purpose of protecting and guiding practitioners, as well as serving “as a tool to maintain public trust in the profession".

The RTPI’s code contains five core principles for members to follow:

1. To act with competence, honesty and integrity

2. To exercise their independent professional judgement to the best of their skill and understanding

3. To discharge their duties with due care and diligence

4. To promote equality of opportunity

5. To not bring the profession or RTPI into disrepute.

The review, the RTPI says, is an opportunity to consider any new issues that may have arisen since the 2011 review, such as new legislation.

The review aims to ensure that the process remains manageable and fit for purpose.

The deadline for consultation responses is Monday 28 September, 2015.
