Turley at the RTPI Young Planners' Conference

Turley is delighted to sponsor the Gala Dinner at the RTPI Young Planners’ Conference

National Football Museum

The conference, which takes place from 2–4 November at Manchester’s Museum of Science and Industry, is an opportunity for young planners from across the UK to network, learn and share ideas. Delegates finish off their first full day at the conference with a Gala Dinner at The National Football Museum.

The conference is hosted by the North West Young Planners' Committee which includes Carly Hinde, a Senior Planner in our Manchester office. Alongside her day job, Carly has been responsible for speaker co-ordination at the conference. Speaking about attending the conference, Carly said:

“I am looking forward to meeting lots of young planners and hearing from a variety of speakers including Stephen Wilkinson, the president of the RTPI and speakers from various organisations and companies, including Allied London, Bruntwood, Kings Chambers, Manchester City Council, Muse, Pinsent Masons, Planning Inspectorate, Shoosmiths, Urban Splash and Urbed.”

A cohort of 24 Turley co-owners from across six offices will attend the event which includes a series of plenary sessions, study tours and workshops. Jack Haw and Claire Easton from Turley’s Heritage team are hosting a crash course introduction to heritage, providing an overview of conservation of the historic environment.  Jack and Claire said:

“We are looking forward to delivering an interactive presentation intended to inform and dispel some of the myths around the historic environment and the planning process.”

The conference theme ‘Healthy, Happy Places and People: Planning for Well-being’ is timely for Turley co-owners, relating to our Shaping Better Places initiative which focuses on sustainability and adding value for those living within the space.
