KMA are double finalists!
We are thrilled to be shortlisted as finalists in two categories of the RTPI Awards for Planning Excellence 2020.
KMA have reached the finals stage in both Small Planning Consultancy of the Year and Excellence in Plan Making, for Your Kirky Town Centre in Kirkintilloch, East Dumbartonshire.
Recognition in the Small Planning Consultancy category has come from and the hard work of a dedicated team. We have a team that is committed to constant development and applying our specialist skills to equip communities, stakeholders and client teams to deliver better places. This shortlisting comes during a period of sustained growth for the practice, as we continue to work on sector-leading projects throughout the country. Of course none of this can happen without great collaborations with clients, communities and co-consultants all across the UK, thanks to all who have been part of this.
The plan-making achievement of Your Kirky has been driven by an amazing core of enthusiastic local people around Kirkintilloch Community Council who believe in place-making and influencing their town centre for the better. Supported by ourselves, Willie Miller Urban Design, and East Dunbartonshire Council officers, they’ve recognised that by enabling local people to plan they can help shape the town centre they want and not leave it to chance. It’s been incredible for KMA and Willie Miller colleagues to work with this group and enable them to guide their town in its transformation.
Good luck to all the other finalists, and we look forward to the finals in late April.
