– hosted by ResPublica, the Woodland Trust and the National Trust
We believe that beauty should play a central role at the heart of the planning system and public policy more broadly. Beginning with the publication of our 2015 report A Community Right to Beauty, and continuing with our Backing Beauty Commission, our organisations have examined the benefits of building beauty into public policy, and considered how this can be achieved at a practical level, making recommendations to policymakers on issues including house building, national and neighbourhood planning policy, and community rights.
During the last Parliament, developments such as the increased political attention given to housing policy and public concern over the future of parks have brought questions of beauty to the forefront of debates over the future of both the natural and built environment. With a new Parliament now elected, this event offered a chance to both review the developments of recent years and to look ahead to the challenges and opportunities facing the Government in this space.
You can find the Minister’s speech at our event here.
