Surface Planner attains RTPI Chartered status

21 December 2016

Alasdair Adey, Planning Consultant at Surface, has recently qualified as a Chartered Town Planner, awarded by the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI).  Alasdair is now a qualified member of the institute (MRTPI).

Alasdair originally joined Surface in 2014 after graduating from Edinburgh Heriot-Watt University with an RTPI-accredited MSc degree in Urban and Regional Planning. During his time as a member of the RTPI, Alasdair has developed his professional experience, working on a wide-range of schemes, including residential and commercial property, and infrastructure projects. This has allowed him to develop the competencies expected of a Chartered Planning Consultant, and successful completion of the RTPI assessment of professional competency has confirmed his experience and skills are those of a Chartered Town Planner.

Alasdair said “I am delighted to attain this personal and professional milestone, and I look forward to continuing to develop my professional competency and expertise. The range of projects I have worked on during my time at Surface has undoubtedly contributed to the development of my professional abilities, whilst the advice and support I have received from my colleagues has been fantastic.”
