Localism - New RIBA Guide for Architects
The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has published a new guide on community engagement for architects in response to the Localism agenda. JTP projects are highlighted as case studies in each document. Caterham Village features in Part 1: Neighbourhood Planning and Graylingwell Park features in Part 2: Getting Community Engagement Right.
The RIBA say that:
"The guides highlight the role of architects in helping communities understand the potential of their local built environment and preparing neighbourhood plans.
Part 1: Neighbourhood Planning introduces the proposed changes to the planning system and outlines how this will affect architects, before highlighting how architects can use their design skills to get involved in the development of neighbourhood plans.
Part 2: Getting Community Engagement Right shows how architects can enable local communities to participate fully in shaping the way their local area looks and feels, highlighting key principles of successful, meaningful engagement."
