The Royal Town Planning Institute champions the power of planning in creating prosperous places and vibrant communities. Using our expertise and research we bring evidence and thought leadership to shape planning policies and thinking, putting the profession at the heart of society's big debates.
We set the standards of planning education and professional behaviour that give planners, wherever they work in the world, a unique ability to meet complex economic, social and environmental challenges.
We are the only body in the UK that confers Chartered status to planners, the highest professional qualification sought after by employers in both private and public sectors. We support our members – 23,000 worldwide - throughout their careers, offering them a wide of range of opportunities to learn and share ideas and skills.
