RTPI’s Politicians in Planning Network Launch


A new network dedicated to the sharing of best practice between planners and politicians of all levels was launched this week by the RTPI, in partnership with Cratus.

The inaugural event was launched by Jackie Weaver and included debates on the value of local democracy, the impact that both Covid-19 and improved technology has had on community engagement and how there needs to be a shift from simple numbers when it comes to housing.

An insightful panel debate with representatives from all of the home nations showed the value of local and national politicians sharing their experience and expertise across local authority and national boundaries to ensure that planners and politicians could work together to provide the best outcomes for their communities.
