Government Policy on Architecture
The Government Policy on Architecture 2009-2015 was launched in October 2009 and provides the appropriate framework for architectural policy up to 2015 and beyond and is led centrally by Built Heritage and Architectural Policy. The policy places an emphasis on sustainable development of the environment and urban design, incorporates architectural heritage in a holistic integrated manner, and encourages and supports high quality modern architecture. The policy complements and supports the Government’s wider economic strategy within the Programme for Government in areas such as built environment research and quality place-making.
The availability of direct grant aid annually is to support activities that relate directly to objectives within the Government Policy on Architecture but which are independently run through other organisations/stakeholder groups and which may be assisted by a financial contribution.
