One of the greatest impacts you can have on people’s lives is where they live and work.
Welcome to the world of planning. Do not think that major government cut-backs, both national and local have caused a decline in jobs. Both the public and private sectors need planners.
A town planner is just as likely to work for a construction company or developer as a local council.
Good planning advice can save both sides of the bargain - those seeking and those granting planning permission – a great deal of money. That’s why good planners, especially those who specialise, can have very rewarding careers.

The Royal Town Planning Institute says that planning is the fourth most successful degree subject for finding work after completion.
Planning for both urban and rural landscapes needs a wide knowledge base.
This includes planning law and legislation and finance and policy development;
Planners need to be strategic thinkers, capable of analytical research and at the end of the day be able to make a reasoned argument.
And good candidates can find help with study costs. The Future Planners Bursary is the Royal Town Planning Institute’s highly successful bursary for places on accredited university planning Master's courses. It is open to students from any discipline, including law, politics, geography or architecture.
Planning is changing like every other profession as technology develops. Creating 3D computer models now forms an essential element of the undergraduate Town and Regional Planning course at a number of universities; these are an import tool to help people understand the impact of a proposed development.
