The Town and Country Planning Association (TCPA) is an independent charity working to improve the art and science of town and country planning. The TCPA puts social justice and the environment at the heart of policy debate and inspires government, industry and campaigners to take a fresh perspective on major issues, including planning policy, housing, regeneration and climate change.

Our objectives are to:
1. Secure a decent, well designed home for everyone, in a human-scale environment combining the best features of town and country;
2. Empower people and communities to influence decisions that affect them; and
3. Improve the planning system in accordance with the principles of sustainable development.
