Bourne Estate Regeneration Project receives Commendation at prestigious RTPI Planning Awards

May 25, 2018

The regeneration of the Bourne Estate in Holborn, London, has received a Commendation in the category for Excellence in Planning for Homes at last night’s Royal Town Planning Institute’s (RTPI) Awards for Planning Excellence 2018.

The RTPI Awards are the most established and respected awards in the UK planning industry. Running for over 40 years, they celebrate exceptional examples of planning and the contribution planners make to society.

The Bourne Estate Regeneration project has delivered 75 new mixed tenure homes through sensitive redevelopment of the southern portion of the grade II estate.

The Tibbalds led team were procured and appointed under the HCA (now Homes England) Multi Disciplinary Panel 2010-2014.

Tibbalds led and managed the planning and design process working in close collaboration with London Borough of Camden planning officers throughout the project. The final design of the spaces and buildings has taken on board local community and key stakeholders views, as well as officer and Historic England feedback. The project has helped to turn the southern area of the estate into a high quality environment and deliver much needed affordable homes.

John Acres MRTPI, President of the Royal Town Planning Institute said:

“This year’s finalists reflect the important contribution planners and planning makes to creating great places and tackling the challenges we face across the UK. Planners are taking on new and innovative projects and the finalists show they are succeeding. It’s a huge achievement just to be shortlisted this year given the 6% rise in entries to the awards and the high calibre of entries will make judging very difficult.”
