We are delighted to announce that Planit-IE is part of the FCBStudios-led team that has won the Camden Council competition for Camley Street Regeneration.

We are delighted to announce that Directors Andy Roberts and Lindsay Humblet have been appointed as High Street Task Force Experts.

The Task Force has recruited highly qualified experts from leading national bodies: Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI), Landscape Institute, Design Council, and the Institute of Place Management, to support transformation of our High Streets and help tackle complex barriers to change over the next 4 years.
The conversation around what makes cities liveable is at the heart of what we do at Planit-IE.
