Select Committee Report on National Policy for the Built Environment cites Theatres Trust evidence

Building Better Places

The House of Lord’s Built Environment Select Committee today released its report ‘Building Better Places’ on National Policy for the Built Environment. The Report asserts the importance of delivering a better built environment and criticises current government policy as unlikely to meet demand for either the quantity or quality of houses we need. The Committee is concerned about the quality of new developments, and about the risk of housing delivery being prioritised at the expense of other elements of the built environment.

The Theatres Trust submitted written evidence highlighting our concerns about how NPPF guidance is being implemented and the adverse effect this has on cultural facilities (which includes theatres), cultural and social well-being, heritage, and town centres.
