Commenting on the sponsorship of the awards, Oliver Ramm, Director of RammSanderson said, “We’re delighted to continue our support of the RTPI East Midlands; with this event being the 4th we have sponsored in recent years. This year we are celebrating five years in business, during which time we have experienced significant growth. Sponsorship of the RTPI awards is an ideal platform to raise our profile to a key target audience. We’re looking forward to seeing who will win the Planning for the Natural Environment Award.”

The RTPI Awards for Planning Excellence are the longest running and most high-profile awards in the industry. For 40 years they have rewarded the brightest talent in the profession; the teams, projects and individuals that transform economies, environments and their communities all over the UK and internationally.

With planners tackling some of the most pressing issues of our time, from population growth and housing shortage to environmental issues and climate change, it has never been more important to reward the contributions of the profession to society.

The event will commence at 6pm with a welcome drinks reception and the awards ceremony will follow. There will be a hot food buffet and a bar will be open throughout the evening.

Tickets will go on general sale soon and can be ordered online by visiting the RTPI website or by email eastmidlands@rtpi.org.uk
