Transport Planner of the Year 2017

Nominations for Transport Planner of the Year are being sought for the Transport Planning Society sponsored ‘Transport Planner of the Year Award 2017'

We are looking for individuals who have made an exceptional contribution to the transport planning profession over the last year. This could be in the form of a project delivered, a pioneering technique or approach used, someone who has put their head above the parapet  or just because they are a good ambassador to the profession.

Please send the name of your nominee and no more that 250 words stating why they should be considered for this award to our Development Officer, Andy Costain at

The prestigious award will be presented at the annual Transport Practitioners’ Meeting to be held from 28-29 June in Nottingham. Last year's winner was Stephen Wood.  Stephen has done sterling work in strengthening the function of transport planning within NI as Head of Transport Planning and Modelling within the Department for Infrastructure (NI). He has also promoted the application of transport planning processes more widely within the Department through establishing a Managed Services Framework covering modelling, scheme appraisal, strategy formulation and local public transport scheduling. He has devised and implemented local transport studies to support Council-led local development plans.

The deadline for nominations is  19 May 2017.
