This NLA talk given by Prof Matthew Carmona, Specialist advisor to the House of Lords Select Committee on National Policy for the Built Environment, will be the first briefing and debate on the findings of the Committee, to be published on Friday 19th February.
- What role should national policymakers play in shaping our built environment?
- What role should the Government play in seeking to address current issues of housing supply?
- How do we develop built environments which are sustainable and resilient?
- Do the professions and agencies involved in this area have the skills to consider the built environment in a holistic manner?
- Are we using the right tools and techniques to promote high quality design and ‘place-making’?
- How could we improve consideration of the impacts of the built environment upon the health of users and upon behaviours within communities?
- How is the planning system and national planning policy performing on issues like the green belt, land supply, and the delivery of housing?
