The Planning Awards are run by Planning magazine in conjunction with PlanningResource and PlacemakingResource.
The Awards recognise excellence in both planning and placemaking. This means that, as well as recognising outstanding professional planning work, they also reward excellence in planning-related activities such as placemaking, urban design, economic development, housing, regeneration, legal advice and environmental consulting.
Submissions are invited across 25 categories. Entry involves completing a short online entry form for assessment by the expert judging panel.
The awards ceremony itself, which brings together professionals across the industry for a night of both celebration and networking, will take place at a prestigious central London venue. The ceremony for the 2018 awards was held at Savoy Place, overlooking the River Thames.
