Sheffield graduates elected as RTPI Fellows
- Colin Haylock graduated with an MA in Town and Regional Planning
- Wei Yang graduated from the School of Architecture
Two Sheffield graduates have received Fellowships of the RTPI this month. Former RTPI President Colin Haylock and Wei Yang have been elected Fellows of the Institute, recognising their major contribution to the planning profession for the benefit of the public. Both were congratulated by Emeritus Professor Tony Crook and RTPI President John Acres at the RTPI General Assembly Meeting earlier this week.
Currently a planning consultant, Visiting Professor and Lecturer at UCL’s Bartlett School of Planning, and a Design Council CABE Built Environment Expert, Colin Haylock began his career after he graduated with an MA in Town and Regional Planning from the University of Sheffield.
Dr Wei Yang graduated with an MArch from the School of Architecture, and is currently the Managing Director at Wei Yang and Partners. Dr Yang has been recognised for promoting best practice and new techniques in a Chinese context, and for her innovation in implementing the 21st Century Garden City approach.
Colin Haylock, who has been a Member of the RTPI’s Council and General Assembly since 1990, received his Fellowship in recognition of his contribution to the profession and wider community, as well as his voluntary work with the RTPI.
