The Faith and Place network is delighted to announce the publication of our Wales policy briefing this month. You can download an electronic version in English or Welsh here.  Dual language print versions are being sent out to local planning authorities and religious organisations in Wales over the next few weeks. The Archbishop of Wales, Barry Morgan, had this to say about the July 2016 Wales policy briefing:

Bydd y canllaw hwn yn cael ei groesawu’n fawr, a’i werthfawrogi’n arbennig gan grwpiau ffydd nad ydynt yn ddigon ffodus i gael cefnogaeth adrannau eiddo sefydliadol, yn ogystal â chynllunwyr sy’n ceisio cael dealltwriaeth well o’r anghenion a’r posibiliadau o fewn eu cymunedau.

This guide is very welcome, and will be particularly appreciated by faith groups who are not fortunate enough to be backed up by organisational property departments, and by planners seeking a better understanding of the needs and possibilities within their communities.

After a long year of deliberations, the AHRC Faith and Place network has produced a policy briefing containing 15 recommendations for faith groups and planners and other interested parties.

The policy briefing will be launched at the House of Commons on Thursday 15th October, 5-7pm, sponsored by Rt Hon Stephen Timms MP, the labour party faith envoy. The launch takes place in the Jubilee room to an invited audience of planners, faith group leaders, MPs, local government representatives, academics and civil society organisations.

The policy briefing addresses five policy areas emerging from the network, namely Understanding One Another, Community, Equality & Diversity, Sharing Good Practice and the Planning Framework.
