The Planning Awards are back for 2023!

Good luck to everyone who entered.

The Planning Awards are back for their ninth successive year. These Awards showcase the outstanding work across the planning and placemaking sectors and recognise excellence in planning and associated placemaking disciplines, including heritage conservation, urban design, economic development, partnership working, environmental consultancy, housing and law. 

With categories across the spectrum, including the new Award for Planning to Address Climate Change, these Awards are the best opportunity to champion your people and projects, and get the recognition you deserve.

Entry has now closed and judging has commenced. 
The shortlist is due to be announced on 5 April.

Meet The 2023 Judging Panel

Nominate a judge

The Planning Awards matter because they are judged by your toughest critics, your peers. Our expert judging panel is made up of leaders from across the planning and placemaking industries, and we pride ourselves on our rigorous and objective judging process.

Nominations to get involved are welcome from across the industry, either for yourself or a colleague using the link below. The final judging panel will be comprised of an inclusive range of individuals to fully represent the industry. Our aim is to give as many diverse voices (women, BAME, LGBTQ+, different ages / seniority, people with disabilities) a chance to determine the results of this industry-leading event.
