Pro Vision employee achieves Chartered Town Planner status

27th July, 2018

A Pro Vision employee has reached a major milestone in her career.  Kirstin Gray has become a Chartered Member of the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI), a hallmark of professional expertise and competence.

The senior planning consultant joined Pro Vision in 2014 after working at West Berkshire Council for six years. She started her career in interior design before retraining as a planner, graduating from Oxford Brookes University with an MSc in Spatial Planning.

Kirstin, 32, then became a licentiate member of the RTPI and built up her experience in public and private sectors, working on a variety of schemes from large-scale residential to retail, leisure, mixed-use commercial and rural planning.

Now, following an assessment of professional competence, she has been awarded the accolade of Chartered Town Planner status. The RTPI is Europe’s largest professional body for planners with 24,000 members. 

Kirstin said: “I am really pleased to have been elected as a Chartered Member by the RTPI. This marks a significant step in my career and is symbolic of the hard work I have put in to my professional development over the past few years.”

Commenting on her qualification, Steven Smallman, managing director at Pro Vision, said: “I’m delighted with Kirstin’s achievement. It is well deserved. She is a highly competent and experienced planning professional who provides our clients with thoughtful and astute advice.”  

Pro Vision is a growing consultancy with a team of 28 qualified and chartered town planners, urban designers, architects and ecologists.
