Published: Friday, December 20, 2013


The Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht has published an Annual Report on the Government Policy on Architecture for the period 2011-2012.

The Government Policy on Architecture 2009-2015 provides the appropriate framework for architectural policy to 2015. The policy places an emphasis on sustainable development of the environment and urban design, encourages and supports high quality modern architecture, and incorporates architectural heritage in a holistic, integrated manner. The policy complements and supports the Government’s wider economic strategy in areas such as research and the development of efficient and sustainable solutions for the built environment.

The key priorities for 2011-2012 were the on-going support of the Government Policy on Architecture Advisory Committee (GPAAC) and the supporting Government Policy on Architecture Implementation Group (GPAIG). An initial 20 priority actions had been identified from the overall 45, implementation of which began in 2010. These priority actions deal with specific areas such as built environment research, public awareness, policy development in urban design and sustainable development.
