Green Port Hull nominated for prestigious planning industry award - 14/03/18
Green Port Hull is a finalist in the category for Excellence in Planning for a Successful Economy at the Royal Town Planning Institute’s (RTPI) Awards for Planning Excellence 2018.

The RTPI Awards are the most established and respected awards in the UK planning industry. Running for more than 40 years, they celebrate exceptional examples of planning and the contribution planners make to society.

Green Port Hull is England's only offshore wind renewable industry hub, delivered through multi-disciplinary working between private and public sectors, across terrestrial and marine environments.
Councillor Martin Mancey, Hull City Council portfolio holder for economic investment, regeneration and planning, said: “I am delighted that Green Port Hull has been named as a finalist for this prestigious award. The nomination shows how important the Green Port Hull development is proving to be for the region’s growing green energy sector. The city’s economy is trending upwards and Green Port Hull has been a major influence on this trend.”

John Acres MRTPI, president of the Royal Town Planning Institute, said: “This year’s finalists reflect the important contribution planners and planning makes to creating great places and tackling the challenges we face across the UK. Planners are taking on new and innovative projects and the finalists show they are succeeding. It’s a huge achievement just to be shortlisted this year given the 6% rise in entries to the awards and the high calibre of entries will make judging very difficult.”

The winners will be announced during a ceremony held at Milton Court at The Barbican, London on Thursday 24 May. Tickets are on sale on the RTOPI website at www.rtpi.org.uk

Andrew Jones MRTPI, practice leader design planning and economics at AECOM said: “AECOM is proud to once again be a headline sponsor of this year’s RTPI Awards for Planning Excellence. The finalists are a diverse mixture of outstanding examples of planning, which demonstrate the breadth of the impact the profession has on quality place making and delivery in the built environment.”

David Jackson MRTPI, head of planning at Savills said: “Savills is delighted to be a headline sponsor of the RTPI Awards for Planning Excellence. The finalists reflect the positive impact planning has on our communities and wider society across the UK, Ireland and internationally through exemplary projects, plans and people.”

The RTPI champions the power of planning in creating prosperous places and vibrant communities. It is the only body in the UK that confers Chartered status to planners, the highest professional qualification sought after by employers. It supports its members – over 25,000 worldwide – throughout their careers.
