Landscape Institute to quiz members on everything from work to travel to the office

Landscape Institute is calling on its members to give their vision of how the group should develop in the next 3-5 years.

"We are seeking the views of members in practice on recent and future changes within the profession," said the Landscape Institute, calling for "insights on your working environment".

"We regularly survey members' response to our communications," said chief executive Alastair McCapra in the questionnaire on the job, clients and mode of transport to work.

"But this is the first time that we have sought the views of members in practice on the direction of the profession.

Results of the survey would be published in anonymous form, he said. Questions include the sort and size of organisation you work for.

What changes have had the greatest impact on your organisation's work over the past five years, and what kinds of challenges have these thrown up? the company asks.

Another question seeks to know if the role of the landscape architect in your department grown, reduced or stayed about the same.
