Changing Landscapes Conference, Craigavon

In January 2014, in partnership with the Northern Ireland Environment Agency and Craigavon Borough Council, LINI delivered an important conference, ‘Changing Landscapes’, to over 100 delegates on the role of Landscape Character Assessment in local development plan-making, and its relevance to the new local authorities after April 2015. The Minister of the Environment, Mark H Durkan, opened the conference, explicitly recognising the work of the landscape architectural profession in sustainable design, site planning, green infrastructure, protecting, stewarding and enhancing our landscapes. He made several important announcements: revision of the Landscape Character Assessment for Northern Ireland; a Landscape Charter for Northern Ireland; and his intention to have a Landscape Strategy for Northern Ireland.
