The Minister said: “This is an excellent opportunity for suitably qualified individuals to use their experience and skills to become design champions and to further the good work already taken by the Ministerial Advisory Group in improving the built environment around us. I hope that there is a high level of interest from those who wish to create an attractive, healthy, safe and sustainable built environment which contributes to neighbourhood renewal and economic growth while promoting equality and tackling poverty and social exclusion.”
In June 2006 the Department published the ‘Architecture and the Built Environment for Northern Ireland’ policy. This policy made provision for the creation of a Ministerial Advisory Group to advise on policy implementation and to champion good design in the built environment.
