'Registered Planners' for good planning

The Planning Institute of Australia’s Registered Planner program is a mechanism to identify and promote high-calibre planners. It recognises that only good planners can achieve good planning—by professionals with skills and knowledge not found in other disciplines.

To be a Registered Planner it is necessary to be a Full Member of the Planning Institute of Australia, have five years professional experience, meet competency for six key practice areas covering the skill and knowledge of good planning , and commit to continuing professional development. Less than 30% of all planners in Queensland meet the requirements. It is much more than having a degree in planning but requires demonstrated experience, knowledge, and proficiency.
A Registered Planner therefore represents—

  • "High levels of integrity and professionalism
  • An ability to use spatial thinking and interpret complex data
  • A creative and integrative approach to problem-solving, drawing on a range of disciplines and methods
  • An ability to develop and apply technical knowledge
  • Advanced collaboration and stakeholder engagement skills
  • An understanding of how to work within planning frameworks” (PIA, 2018)

Being ‘Registered’ is part of our quality assurance for our clients.
