Shortlist announced for RTPI excellence awards

Words: Laura Edgar
RTPI Awards 2016

Ninety finalists have made the shortlist for the RTPI Awards for Planning Excellence 2017.

The awards have been running for nearly 40 years. They aim to celebrate exceptional examples of planning and the contribution planners make to society.

Last year’s awards saw ‘Plan for Homes’, by Plymouth City Council, win the RTPI Silver Jubilee Cup.

Stephen Wilkinson, president of the RTPI, said: “The finalists represent some outstanding contributions to planning which are making a positive impact for the community and environment. The judges will find it difficult choosing the winners given the high calibre of entries this year.”

There are more than 12 categories in the awards including Excellence in Planning to Deliver Housing, Excellence in Plan Making Practice, and Local Authority Planning Team of the Year.

The winners will be announced at a ceremony at Milton Court at The Barbican, London, on 15 June 2017.

The headline sponsors are AECOM and Savills.

A full list of the categories and nominees can be found on the RTPI website.
