RICS Presents Sustainability Research

The recently published RICS Comprehensive Project Appriaisal (CPA)
research was presented to officials from the European Commission on 24
October.

An RICS delegation led by Chairman of the research steering group,
Nicholas Woolley FRICS, met with officials from the Directorates for
Agriculture and Environment to present the work. CPA, which is
applicable to many development projects from urban development schemes
to long term rural diversification, fits in to the recent European
agenda on sustainability and was welcomed by the Commission who will be
researching a range of impact assessment tools in early 2002.

RICS plans to meet again with the officials to discuss this matter
further. An excellent opportunity exists to raise the profile of the
project in Europe and furthermore to showcase RICS expertise in this area.
