Helping you find a career in the Town planning industry

Town planning comprises all aspects of our urban built environments. All the buildings, roads, and parks around you have gone through a strict planning process and been approved by officials.

Within planning you could work across many different sub-disciplines including: transport, urban design, environmental, utilities and regeneration – the area that you specialise in is up to you.

There’s a high level of responsibility in town planning as you will be generally involved with making sure that all buildings, public and private, comply with regulations. You may also be involved with the development of planning policies and the conservation of heritage buildings.

You would have to be up to date on changes to planning policies and legislation in order to analyse plans and offer advice on project proposals.

There is currently a big skills shortage within the sector because many town planners left the industry after the 2008 recession. For those that are only just beginning a career in the industry this could mean that there are opportunities for quick progression, and salaries are higher than they used to be!


Skills & interests required for a career in Town planning
To work in town planning you will need to have a logical mind and be able to come up with concepts whilst adhering to planning regulations.

You will also be required to liaise with multiple teams and communicate with others who may not be as knowledgeable about procedures and regulations. Therefore, you need to be able to break these technical matters down in an accessible way for non-specialists.

Time management skills are critical as a town planner to ensure that you can balance multiple projects at once.
- Communication
- Creativity
- Problem Solving
- Time Management
Graduate schemes & other typical career progression routes in Town planning
If your degree is accredited by the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) you can begin a role as a graduate or assistant planner. Most would stay in this role for a minimum of two years.

In order to progress further in town planning, you will need to obtain chartered status. This will enable you to move into senior positions and potentially manage a team.
Tips for getting into the field
Volunteering or work experience programmes will provide hands-on exposure to the workplace and enable you to see what they day-to-day work would be like as a town planner. Experience can be incredibly important in this industry and this will help you to stand out above other candidates.
How much can graduates earn in Town planning?
Most graduates will start off around £20,000 in town planning. Your pay will increase with experience and could potentially increase to £45,000.

If you are the head of planning and development within local government you could earn between £55,000 to an impressive £100,000.
What qualifications do I need for a career in Town planning?
Usually town planners will have a degree related to this industry – such as geography.

To become a town planner you have to have a degree or postgraduate qualification that is accredited by the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI). This is usually through a built-in masters, which means that you will be studying for four years, or if you do not wish to specialise that early you can do a general undergraduate degree and then a postgraduate degree in Town Planning.

These degrees will require 5 GCSEs and 3 A-levels, but the specific entry requirements will differ between Universities.
