Public consultation for a new National Policy on Architecture

The Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht has launched a public consultation phase for a new National Policy on Architecture.

The proposed new policy will support long–term planning strategies and will assist in addressing key issues including societal well-being, climate change and urban regeneration. A discussion document has been prepared by the Department which outlines the scope and ambitions of the proposed new National Policy on Architecture, provisionally entitled ‘Places for People’, which is based around five key themes:

  • Designing for climate resilience and sustainability
  • Designing quality places for public benefit
  • Respecting our past, shaping our future
  • Leadership, and
  • Knowledge and innovation.

The discussion document Places for People, an online survey as part of the public consultation process, and other relevant material can be found at https://www.chg.gov.ie/heritage/built-heritage/architectural-policy/.
