We advocate best practice in the sustainable development and management of new and evolving buildings and spaces while preserving the best of what we have inherited from the past. We encourage planners and developers to create built environments – buildings, streets, waterways, spaces (e.g. parks, squares, neighbourhoods) – in which we and future generations will want to live.

Our work focuses on:

  • influencing planning processes and strategic plans;
  • scrutinising and commenting on planning applications;
  • securing and preserving features of historic or public interest.

Our article “How to Comment on Planning Applications” is a useful and thorough guide for anyone who wants to comment on – or object to – a planning application.

The Planning page has much more information about our recent and past activities.
