RTPI Award

  • Neighbourhood Planning
  • Town Planning
  • Urban Design

The Place team are proud owners of a very heavy glass trophy with the inscription 'Small Planning Consultancy of the Year 2015'!

This award is immensely valued by us not just because we are a relatively new (5 years old) company but because our work is so strongly focused on collaborative work with others. So this award is also for all of those clients, communities, authorities, developers and others who have worked so closely with us.

Roisin Willmott, RTPI Awards Advisor said:
“Place Studio has a strong philosophy with a clear niche in neighbourhood planning and community engagement as well as the more ‘traditional’ consultancy roles in strategic planning and development management. The consultancy demonstrated that they are consistently delivering for their clients in a difficult field and although they are a small consultancy they utilise their connections and planning relationships, recognising the expertise required might not be available in-house.”

Find out more about what we do in our regular journal. When time allows (we can be a busy bunch!) where we like to write a little about what we are up to.

Some recent highlights:

The publication of a community engagement book entitled ‘The Craft of Collaborative Planning’ by our very own Jeff Bishop.

An article published in the April 2015 TCPA Journal: 'What happens when you give people real involvement and a shared approach to strategic plan making?'

The completion of some really exciting projects...
