Culture in Planning Alliance

ixia has come together with 19 arts and cultural organisations who jointly campaigned to see culture included in the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) to establish the Culture in Planning Alliance (CiPA).

CiPA will be a voice for culture and the arts in the planning system.

The new group includes planning statutory consultee The Theatres Trust, ixia, the National Federation of Artist Studio Providers, Arts Development UK, Voluntary Arts, theatre bodies SOLT, Theatrical Management Association and the Little Theatre Guild (LTG), and Audiences UK.

CiPA will harness existing cultural planning expertise on theatres, concert halls, art galleries, museums, libraries, public art initiatives, craft venues and artists’ studios to promote the role of culture and the arts in the planning system, share expertise and produce expert guidance on culture and the arts in planning.

Membership of CiPA is open to arts and cultural organisations who wish to see their interests better represented in the planning system.

Founder members include: The Theatres Trust, ixia, the National Federation of Artists’ Studio Providers, Arts Development UK, Voluntary Arts, ABTT, SOLT, TMA, Independent Theatre Council (ITC), Little Theatre Guild (LTG), Dance UK, Association of British Orchestras, Making Music, Visual Arts and Galleries Association (VAGA), National Campaign for the Arts, Crafts Council, Axis, Contemporary Art Society, a-n The Artists Information Company and Audiences UK.
