Good Design = Good Planning

“Good design is indivisible from good planning’ (The National Planning Policy Framework).

RTPI London teamed up with New London Architecture for a series of events to promote good urban design amongst London planning professions during 2012/13.

The key objectives of this series were:

  • To celebrate the role that planners play in achieving good design and raise confidence amongst members.
  • To discuss and debate the role that the planning profession must play in achieving good design.
  • To share best practice in planning for good design, raise awareness and skill levels amongst planners and other built environment professions.
  • To build links between RTPI and other urban design organisations in London.
  • To assist with RTPI members CPD requirements.

The campaign was launched during the London Festival of Architecture in June 2012.

    This is true. Planners are vital in the feedback they give designers so the end result pleases all.
