Public Art and the Planning System – Advice, May 2009:

In May 2009, Ian Dove QC of No5 Chambers in Birmingham published Advice on changes to planning legislation over the last ten years and the implications of this for public art. Commissioned by ixia, in association with legal practice DLA Piper LLP, Mr Dove’s advice was the first major analysis of the issues for more than 20 years.

The Advice states that it is now possible for local planning authorities to require rather than merely encourage public art. This is a fundamental change in the relationship between public art and the planning system. It is now up to commissioners and artists to lead on the development of strategic, considered and plan-led approaches that clearly indicate how developers can best support the commissioning of public art.

To explain the Advice, we held three briefing sessions at various locations across the country in September and October 2009. Ian Dove QC; Jonathan Banks, CEO of ixia; and David Brammer, of DLA Piper provided an overview of the current position of public art within the planning system, talked through the Advice and its implications, took questions and encouraged debate.
