RTPI London Young Planners was established to deliver the 2012 Young Planners Conference. It was then run via a separate-but-parallel committee until 2014, when it was merged with RTPI London. This page is therefore for archive value and is not being updated.
We are open to ideas for events, socials, articles for the blog and are always happy to welcome new members into the committee.

There is an impressive line-up of high profile speakers including Planning Minister Nick Boles MP, Chief Planner Steve Quartermain, and Chair of the influential Communities and Local Government Select Committee Clive Betts MP.

YOUNG PLANNERS EVENT REVIEW: “Temporary Spaces, Permanent Purposes”
The NLA event held last Wednesday (29th May) was a swift but lively whistle-stop tour of Meanwhile Uses, at a very full St Chad’s Place at King’s Cross. Whilst we sipped our beers and nestled into the former mechanic’s workshop and Victorian warehouse, the tour chugged and jerked its way through a hand-picked collection of meanwhile uses, spaces and activities to give a glimpse into a rapidly evolving and exciting genre of design and urban thinking. The presentation took the form of a ‘Pecha Kucha‘ style event which scratched the surface of a number of active and emerging case studies, predominantly in London, providing flash card images, and meandering through the minds of a range of architects into spaces previously unknown.
