INTA is pleased to announce the Association's short-listing by the Royal Town Planning Institute for their prestigious Awards for Planning Excellence 2018, in the category of « International Excellence ». In 2015, INTA qualified as a consultant to the Agence Française de Développement, the entity delegated to manage the basket of urban development projects to be carried out by the Union for the Mediterranean, sponsored by the European Union. One such project - the Economic and Urban multi-site Development Project for Jericho, Palestine » was awarded, after competition, to INTA's multi-disciplinary team led by INTA Vice-President and RTPI Member, Roy Adams OBE.
The team was comprised of experts in architecture, business planning, cost consultancy, engineering, landscape design and urban planning, involving a mix of British, French, Irish and Palestinian nationals. The grouping involved INTA and CEP Palestine as joint leaders, plus Beer & Associates, Calia Conseil and Citta Nova as participants.
The RTPI Awards are the most established and respected awards in the UK planning industry. Running for over 40 years, they celebrate exceptional examples of planning and the contribution planners make to society.
The winners will be announced during a ceremony held at Milton Court at The Barbican, London on 24 May 2018.
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.
