Received: 13/10/2017

Respondent: Theatres Trust

Representation Summary:

The NPPF provides clear directions to LPA about safeguarding/promoting cultural activities/venues.
One of the 12 core planning principles (para.17) is the need to plan for culture to support social wellbeing/sustainable communities.
Para.23 recognises the important role town centres play in supporting communities and notes that cultural venues make a valuable contribution to the vibrancy and success of these centres.
Para.70 states that in 'promoting healthy communities', planning decisions should 'plan positively for cultural buildings' and 'guard against the loss of cultural facilities/services.'
Para.156 directs LPA to ensure their LP includes cultural policies that reflect the NPPF.

Question 72:

Representation ID: 24997

Received: 13/10/2017

Respondent: Theatres Trust

Representation Summary:

Cultural facilities include your theatres, live music venues (inc. public houses), community spaces, museums, cinemas, libraries and other public and performance venues and are important in supporting the local/visitor economy by attracting people to centres where other businesses benefit from the flow on effects.
Local plans should therefore support arts/culture at all levels to support the local economy and ensure that all residents/visitors, have access to cultural opportunities. Policies should protect, support and enhance cultural facilities and activities, particularly those which might otherwise be traded in for more commercially lucrative developments, and promote cultural led development as a catalyst for regeneration.

Question 35:

Representation ID: 25000

Received: 13/10/2017

Respondent: Theatres Trust

Representation Summary:

Policies should protect, support and enhance cultural facilities and activities, particularly those which might otherwise be traded in for more commercially lucrative developments.
The Trust recommends a policy along the lines of -
Development of new cultural and community facilities will be supported and should enhance the well-being of the local community, and the vitality and viability of centres.
Major developments are required to incorporate, where practicable, opportunities for cultural activity to widen public access to art and culture, including through the interpretation of the heritage of the site and area.
The loss or change of use of existing cultural and community facilities will be resisted unless
* replacement facilities are provided on site or within the vicinity which meet the need of the local population, or necessary services can be delivered from other facilities without leading to, or increasing, any shortfall in provision; or
* it has been demonstrated that there is no longer a community need for the facility or demand for another community use on site.
