We are so pleased to share the brilliant news that Georgina has become a Chartered Town Planner, the ultimate qualification for the profession awarded exclusively by the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI).

Georgina joined Place Studio back in 2017 when she worked part time as she studied for her masters in Urban Planning at UWE. Following her graduation with a distinction she joined us full time. Since then, she joined the RTPI as a student member, building up her experience and expertise with us on a range of development and Neighbourhood Planning projects, which has contributed to Georgina hitting this career landmark of becoming a RTPI Chartered Town Planner.

We have a commitment to career progression and training. Working with Georgina, we’ve all made sure that her opportunities and work streams as part of our small team have enabled her to achieve chartership (on her first attempt too which only 50% of applicants can boast!)

Well done Georgina – proud of you!
