Civic Trust Cymru promotes civic pride as a means to improving the quality of life for all in the places where we live and work, and encourages community action, good design, sustainable development and respect for the built environment amongst people of all ages.

Characterisation: exploring place with community groups

The Civic Trust’s work on characterisation continues, and as part of this we’re trying to move characterisation away from being the sole domain of conservation professionals (and the Heritage Bill). We believe that characterisation is equally relevant to planners, architects and developers, and therefore also has a valid part to play in the place plans proposed in the ‘Positive Planning’ document that accompanies the Wales Planning Bill. To help spread the word about characterisation an article by Anna Lermon was published in the RTPI Cymru’s Spring 2014 Newsletter Cynllunio :characterisation-exploring-place-with-community-groups_-article-in-cynllunio-spring-2014
