Lords to debate architecture

  • Comment
The House of Lords will hold a debate on architecture for the first time in four years.

The debate is being scheduled to ‘call to attention the case for encouraging high-quality architecture in the UK and for ensuring that design quality is taken into account by local planning authorities’.

Led by former architecture minister Lord Howarth of Newport, the debate will include the likes of Richard Rogers delivering their views on architecture and the planning system. It will take place ahead of the Planning Bill, which will be considered in the House of Lords after Easter.

Baroness Andrews of the Department for Communities and Local Government will be the minister responding to the debate.

The list of Lords speaking includes:

• Lord Rogers of Riverside
• Rt Hon Lord Rodgers of Quarrybank
• Rt Hon Lord (John) Patten
• Lord Carlile of Berriew
• Lord Dixon-Smith
• Lord Low of Dalston
• Baroness Hamwee
• Baroness Whitaker
