Intro Text 

Architecture and our built environment are central to our society. Good quality buildings and places have a positive impact on people, their health and well-being and their ability to prosper. The places  we inhabit affect how we live, socialise, create, work and play. They reflect our value systems and give us our cultural identity and sense of place.  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.

The new National Policy on Architecture will focus actions on five key themes;

• Designing for climate resilience and sustainability

• Designing quality places for public benefit

• Respecting our past, shaping our future

• Leadership

• Knowledge and Innovation

The Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, invites the public to make submissions by email to architecture@chg.gov.ie  or through the online survey before 31 January 2020.
