Planning Professionals

Planning professionals is a stakeholder category as diverse and diffuse as the other categories. Territorial planning is not even recognized as a profession. Bachelor and master degrees exist for urban and spatial planners, often combined with degrees in geography, architecture, engineering or social and environmental sciences. These qualifications are often required to solicit for territorial planning jobs but not always.  The largest number of territorial planning jobs were typically provided by the public sector but that has dramatically changed over time.  Qualified and non-qualified planning professionals can now be found in all stakeholder groups.
