DOE Planning Win UK Award 24 February 2012

DOE Planning win prestigious UK Award

DOE Planning today won the President’s award at the Royal Town Planning Institute Awards annual UK ceremony in London.

This is a very special award, not always presented each year, and recognises the unique contribution planners in Northern Ireland have delivered, often in very trying circumstances.

Planning Minister, Alex Attwood, welcoming the award said: “This is recognition for DOE Planning to be honoured by the President of the Royal Town Planning Institute. The Special Award recognises the many hard working professional and administrative staff for their contribution to planning achievement over the past twenty years. As a reforming Minister, I believe planning can be radically reshaped and made fitter for purpose. There are issues to be addressed and there are achievements that rightly deserve recognition. This award does so.

“This comes on top of the award from the Irish Planning Institute in Dublin last week for the Peace Bridge and Ebrington and is a platform from which we can build going forward to the transfer of planning to local councils.

The Minister added: “We need to deliver improved public services and make sure that planning makes a real difference to the physical, social and economic development of NI while protecting the best of the built and natural heritage. I made a significant announcement about Runkerry earlier this week and will continue to work with my officials to make the north a better place to live work and invest.”

Speaking at the ceremony in London, the RTPI President for 2011 Richard Sommers said: “Northern Ireland’s planners continued to deliver sound planning decisions and bring forward plans and policies during the political turmoil of “the troubles”. Since then, an upsurge in development proposals and then a sudden drop in activity put great pressures on the planning service. Local government reorganisation and a major programme of legislative reform added further challenges. Northern Ireland Planning is to be commended for its commitment to high standards of professionalism, continuing professional development and consistent support for staff who were redeployed to other departments during this challenging period.”

The award was accepted by Anne Garvey, Head of DOE Planning, who is a member of the RTPI and who has worked in Planning in the DOE for over 30 years.
