RTPI Award Winners for Planning Excellence 2018
The RTPI Awards for Planning Excellence are the longest running and most high-profile awards in the industry. For 40 years they have rewarded the brightest talent in the profession; the teams, projects and individuals that transform economies, environments and their communities all over the UK and internationally. An award which is close to our hearts is the award for 'Excellence in Planning for the Natural Enviroment', which this year was won by Carmarthenshire County Council for their Caeau Mynydd Mawr SPG and Marsh Fritillary Project. This innovative planner-led multidisciplinary project manages the impacts of strategic development in the Cross Hands Economic Growth Area on the marsh fritillary butterfly population and the marshy grassland habitats associated with the Caeau Mynydd Mawr Special Area of Conservation. Un-checked the impact of development in this area would threaten the survival of the butterfly. Supplementary Planning Guidance sets out the rationale for the project to deliver the habitat mitigation considered necessary to avoid any negative impact on the SAC and its features, demonstrating that each development in the growth area is compliant with the EU Regulations. Other Winners included; The London Borough of Hackney for their 'Towards a Stamford Hill Plan', Orkney Islands Council for 'Stromness Regeneration', Plymouth City Council for 'The Nelson Project' and Durham County Council for their 'Seaham Harbour Marina Watersports Activity Centre' project. The 2018 winners were announced at a ceremony in central London on 24 May 2018 and the full list can be downloaded here.

Travel Industry Embraces Sustainability
Following a recent survey by the Hilton Hotel Group earlier this month, the group have pledged to commit to a stringent corporate responsibility strategy, entitled Travel With Purpose which aligns with the UN Sustainable Development Goals and adheres to carbon emission targets that have been approved by the Science Based Targets Initiative. By 2030 the Hilton Group hopes to halve its environmental footprint and double its social impact. The survey reports that 62 percent of people would switch travel providers if they were in the news for unethical practice – even if it means switching to a more expensive company. 56 percent of respondents said they regularly buy products that are fair trade, organic, local or not been tested on animals, and 20 percent would actively seek out information about a hotel brand's environmental credentials before booking. Maybe the reason that this is not higher, is because this information is not as readily available as it is with other consumer products. Some of the ways in which the Hilton Group will become more sustainable by 2030 is by reducing carbon emissions by 61 percent, reducing water usage by 50 percent, as well as sustainably sourcing products such as meat, seafood and cotton. They also plan to recycle soap and reduce the use of single-use plastics, such as straws. With regard to social impact, the Hilton Group has plans to double the company’s investment in youth opportunity programs and will partner with the International Youth Foundation on Passport to Success to attract young talent. Hilton isn’t alone in exploring sustainability initiatives. Many other hospitality companies, including Marriott, Hyatt, AccorHotels, and IHG, have also implemented programs to be more sustainable, as well as to attract more young talent and offer more employment opportunities to locals who live in the communities where they have hotels. Sustainability is firmly on the agenda, now it needs to be communicated out to consumers to allow them to make informed, environmentally conscious choices.

Great British Beach Clean 2018
ALLEN & YORK are taking part in the Great British Beach Clean again this year! It's the biggest beach clean and survey in the UK and provides a valuable insight into the litter problems our seas and oceans are facing Last year we collected over 500 cigarette butts from a seemingly pretty clean Boscombe beach in Dorset and this year we are joining the volunteers down at the slightly wilder Knoll beach in Studland, also in Dorset. Almost 7,000 people took part in the Great British Beach Clean in September 2017 and in total the Marine Conservation Society recorded 255,209 pieces of litter removed from 339 beaches across the UK. It would be fantastic if we could do even better this year. So, if you'd like to get involved visit the Marine Conservation Society website and sign-up today!
Air Pollution in London Higher Than Beijing
Last year, air pollution levels in London were worse than those in Beijing for brief periods - with the capital's pollutants frequently breaking international limits. The Environment Minster, Michael Gove announced this week, government plans to increase action to tackle the UK’s air pollution levels. The draft of the Clean Air Strategy, which has government has been obliged to deliver under EU legislation, is currently at consultant stage suggests that some types of wood burners, car tyres, brakes, cleaning solvents, fertilisers and solid fuels will be banned from sale. Ministers want to halve the number of people exposed to high levels of pollution from fine particles, known as particulates, by 2025. However, many environmentalist groups believe it does not go far enough. In a separate study commissioned by the mayor of London and carried out by University College London and the University of Cambridge, significant levels of air pollution have been found indoors in schools and nurseries in London, which are over the World Health Organisation guidelines of 10μg/m3. Young children are more vulnerable to airborne particles than adults, and there are serious concerns to long-term health damage, to children within schools located near to high-traffic density roads. Higher incidents of asthma and wheezing can be directly linked to greater exposure to nitrogen dioxide. The findings came as the mayor published his first audit of air pollution at 50 of the capital’s schools and a series of measures to help them counter the impact of poor air quality around their schools. The mayor on Thursday announced the creation of a £1m fund to help the worst-affected schools bring in changes immediately. The money will also provide 20 nurseries with air quality audits and indoor air filters. Air pollution has been identified as the fourth biggest threat to public health after cancer, obesity and heart disease.
