Public Art, Cultural Well-Being and the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) events 2013

In November and December 2013, ixia held a second series of three free briefing events on the relationship between the provision of public art and the inclusion of cultural well-being within the NPPF.

The key speakers were: Ian Dove QC, planning barrister from No5 Chambers; Charles Landry, international authority on the use of imagination and creativity in urban change; and Michael Chang, Planning Policy Officer for the Town and Country Planning Association (TCPA).

Ian provided an update on the development and implementation of the NPPF at a national and local level, including the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL), and relating to cultural well-being and public art; Charles examined what cultural well-being means and looks like, how it can be measured and its relationship with the development of places; and Michael discussed the TCPA’s involvement with the Culture and Sport Planning Toolkit, including its Improving Culture, Arts and Sporting Opportunities through Planning. A Good Practice Guide.
