HTA Design nominated for prestigious planning industry award
The Planning Team at HTA Design has been named as a finalist in the categories for Small Planning Consultancy of the Year and Excellence in Planning to Deliver Homes for small and large schemes at the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) Awards for Planning Excellence 2021.
The RTPI Awards for Planning Excellence are the most established and respected awards in the UK planning industry. Running for over 40 years, they celebrate exceptional examples of planning and the contribution planners make to society.
HTA Planning are a niche consultancy, integrated within a multi-disciplinary design practice specialising in residential-led development and creating great new places. The team are involved in wide variety of projects, and have a deep understanding of how planning and design can have a positive impact on communities and contribute towards long-term social value.
Completed in June 2020 and with residents having already moved in, Redhill Court provides 30 high-quality, new affordable homes for local residents in Barnet through the careful reinvention of a mansion block typology on the Former Registry Office in Burnt Oak with award-winning housebuilder Hill.
“We are delighted to be shortlisted for these three awards. Delivering good quality homes that contribute to people’s long-term well-being is our passion as a planning consultancy. We work at the forefront of justifying new typologies for housing delivery through the planning application process. George Street exemplifies how housing delivery could be sped up with off-site manufacturing whilst not losing sight of excellent design quality. Redhill Court demonstrates the good work local authorities are continuing to do across London to deliver much needed housing” Riëtte Oosthuizen, Planning Partner, HTA Design LLP
RTPI President Wei Yang FRTPI said: “Many congratulations to all the finalists at this year’s RTPI Awards for Planning Excellence – these projects, teams and individuals showcase the very best of the planning profession from all the RTPI’s regions and nations and from countries around the world.
“For over 40 years, these prestigious awards have celebrated the exceptional work undertaken by town planners. In the middle of a global pandemic, I believe they are more relevant than ever before, recognising the incredible commitment and dedication of planners who have risen to the challenge of responding to the impacts of Covid-19 on the planning system.
“I wish all the finalists the very best of luck at the ceremony on 29 April.”
