About the TCPA

The Town and Country Planning Association (TCPA) works to challenge, inspire and support people to create healthy, sustainable and resilient places that are fair for everyone. To this end we aim to improve the art and science of planning in the UK and abroad and work to secure fresh perspectives on major issues, including planning policy, housing, regeneration and climate change. Informed by the Garden City Principles, the TCPA’s strategic priorities are to:

  • Work to secure a good home for everyone in inclusive, resilient and prosperous communities, which support people to live healthier lives.
  • Empower people to have real influence over decisions about their environments and to secure social justice within and between communities.
  • Support new and transform existing places to be adaptable to current and future challenges including the climate crisis.
