The Atlantic Planners Institute, Newfoundland and Labrador Branch aims to award the Jack Allston Memorial Award annually to recognize excellence in coverage of local or provincial planning issues by the news media and to raise public awareness of planning issues and professional planning. This award honours the memory of Colonel Jack Allston, FCIP (Fellow of the Canadian Institute of Planners) who was the first Director of Urban and Rural Planning for this new province in the 1950’s and laid the foundation for professional planning in Newfoundland and Labrador.
The Newfoundland & Labrador Branch awarded the 2012 Jack Allston Memorial Award to CBC Newfoundland and Labrador, in recognition of their work on the Newburbia series.
