We are pleased to see the RTPI streamlining the routes to Chartered Membership and look forward to finding out how they will do this at the RTPI Planning Convention in June 2016. We have both chartered and technical members of the RTPI at Smart Planning, all of whom have experienced different routes to membership and we are glad to see this evolving to accommodate Planning Professionals from all backgrounds. We are extremely excited to develop our own Town Planning Technical Support Apprentice, the newest member of our Smart Planning team, over the coming months. Read more on the new routes to membership.
