RTPI-CIH Planning for Housing Network

United Kingdom

CIH and the RTPI work together to provide an additional benefit for housing and planning professionals who belong to either CIH or the RTPI.

Planning for housing

About the network

The aim of the Planning for Housing network is to help develop essential joint thinking and working between people engaged with housing policy and provision, and to ensure there are close links between housing and planning professionals. It is jointly run by RTPI and CIH to highlight the importance we place on our two professions working well together.

The network also helps us both to develop policy, knowledge and good practice. It makes a valuable contribution to debate and sharing of expertise in planning for and delivering the housing we need.

Further information about the network and the benefits of joining is available on the Planning for housing website.

  • News and events from CIH and RTPI
