CAT SUMMER LECTURE & ARCHITECTURE DEGREE SHOW

Thursday 23 May 2019, 17.00

Woodlane Campus, Falmouth University

 

This year we are very excited to have Amin Taha to present the Cornwall Architectural Trust and Falmouth University Summer lecture. 

Amin Taha was born in Berlin and has been settled in the UK since 1974. After working in the offices of Zaha Hadid, Wilkinson Eyre and others he began an independent studio in 2005, later incorporating Groupwork as an Employee Ownership Trust. As well as running the design and detailing of projects Amin has taught, written and lectured on architecture, sat on the RIBA National and International Awards Jury and aids property related research groups and pension funds. 

It has recently been announced that Groupwork, Trenoweth House in Camborne is on the RIBA South West Award shortlist for 2019.

Following the lecture, we are very happy to be offering a chance to view the Falmouth University Architecture Students' end of year exhibition, along with a drinks reception.  The exhibition will be in the Architecture Studios and, weather permitting, drinks will be served in the sub-tropical gardens outside the studio.

The evening will take place as follows:

Kresen Kernow is an exemplary modern archive and library space, bringing together the world’s largest collection of manuscripts, books and documents related to Cornwall, as well as Cornwall Record Office, the Cornish Studies Library and the Cornwall and Scilly Historic Environment Record, for the first time.

Funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Cornwall Council, Kresen Kernow provides a bespoke building, excellent digital facilities, dynamic volunteering opportunities and a diverse range of events, exhibitions and activities, which will improve access and attract wider audiences to celebrate and share in Cornwall’s rich and distinct history.

Kresen Kernow will also safeguard the historic Redruth Brewery building at the heart of the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site in Redruth.

The building officially opens in Sept 2019 and we are really pleased to have secured an early visit for RIBA and CAT members.

PLANNING & A PINT - CIL: THE LESSONS LEARNED SO FAR

The Cornwall Community Infrastructure Levy Charging Schedule came into effect on 1 January 2019. This means that any development granted permission after this date may be liable to pay the levy.

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) allows local authorities to raise funds from new building projects undertaken in their area, and is governed by the CIL Regulations 2010 (as amended). CIL is charged as a fixed rate per square metre of new floor space created, and the money raised can be used to help fund a wide range of infrastructure that is needed to support development. CIL Charging Authorities are required to publish a ‘Regulation 123 List’ which distinguishes between what CIL may be spent on and what other developer contributions will continue to be sought for.

A development is liable for CIL if it:

  • creates a new dwelling of any size; or

  • creates over 100sqm of gross internal floorspace (new build, and before making deductions for existing floorspace that is to be demolished); and

  • involves new buildings or floorspace into which people normally go.
