Now in their 45th year, the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) have announced their shortlist for UK Young Planner of the Year award. Amongst those shortlisted is Edinburgh based Planner, Lisa Proudfoot, who will join other professionals at this year’s annual Awards for Planning Excellence to celebrate exceptional examples of planning and the contribution they make to the built environment and society.
As one of the most respected awards in the UK planning industry, these well-deserved awards celebrate exceptional examples of planning and the contribution planners make to society. As an aside, Lisa’s charity work demonstrates her wider passion, such as her Kenya build in 2019 with Habitat for Humanity and Homes for Scotland as well as her professional excellence; being chair of the RTPI Scottish Young Planners since April 2019 and securing the UK-wide bid to successfully see the RTPI Young Planners Conference being hosted in Edinburgh in 2020 (the first time the event crossed borders since 2007).
Commenting on the shortlist, Andrew Munnis, head of Scotland’s planning team commented:
“Lisa’s drive, ambition, and commitment, have helped promote and inspire Planning as a profession to a younger generation.”
We wish Lisa all the very best at the awards ceremony on 30th April.
