Is the Government planning to ignore Culture?

As we have reported previously, the Government’s draft National Planning Policy Framework sets out the long term requirements when making planning decisions.  The draft doesn’t presently mention culture specifically (except for heritage conservation) and The Theatres Trust has issued a statement asking colleagues from across the culture sector to respond to the government’s proposals to “ensure that culture is afforded the same status as sports, heritage and leisure”.  The DCLG are inviting interested parties to express their views on the proposals. Deadline for responses is October 17.  DCLG Draft Planning Policy here and more in The Stage.
