Sue Taylor becomes one of only 56 honoury members of the institute, which has 23,000 members overall.

The RTPI says that honoury membership of the institute is awarded to people who have made a "significant contribution to the science and art of planning".

Taylor, who is currently planning enforcement manager at Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council, has worked in planning enforcement for 25 years. She previously worked for Sheffield City Council and Bolsover District Council.

President of the RTPI Richard Summers said: "Honoury membership is not bestowed lightly by the institute. Sue has played a key role in raising the profile of planning enforcement, initially through her work with the Planning Executives’ Association and in particular as a founder member and outgoing chair of NAPE."

Taylor said: "I think it is only proper to see this as recognition of the work of planning enforcement officers up and down the country. Planning enforcement is a tough job - enforcement officers are the unsung heroes of planning."
