As the peak organisation representing planners across the Commonwealth CAP has championed, promoted and connected planners and planning since its inception over 40 years ago.

CAP is a volunteer based organisation, drawing support from our 27 member Institutes who in turn represent over 40,000 planners and allied professionals across theCommonwealth.

Our member Institutes vary in size, complexity and the environments in which theycontribute, but together we share a strong  commitmentto ensuring that the role of planners and planning is recognised, respected and remembered.

CAP is guided in its activities by a Strategic plan which places emphasis on the following objectivesand initiatives.


The goals of the YP group are to follow the strong values set by the CAP itself and building on their work, but also having a group of Young Planners who can also share, build and bring fresh ideas.
