SIP Planning Awards

The idea to have the SIP Planning Awards was mooted in the year 2006. The objective was to honour urban planners and the team for the various excellent planning projects or plans undertaken by urban planners and planning consultancy firms in Singapore and overseas. 

The award was open to Singapore planners and planning firms but not restricted to local projects. The inaugural launch of the SIP Planning Awards was made during the Spatial Planning Conference on 3 Apr 2008.
