Faith Communities

Huge demographic shifts have taken place in recent decades in the UK, particularly in our larger conurbations.

This has had knock-on effects on the composition of religious communities, leading to significant demands for new space and facilities. CAG is among the country’s leading experts in the planning system’s response to these challenges.

CAG has worked with numerous local planning authorities to develop a detailed understanding of religious communities in their area and their needs. We can work with you to:

  • Engage faith groups in your area
  • Develop detailed profiles of the religious communities in your area
  • Audit existing provision of places of worship and other facilities
  • Assess the need for additional provision
  • Project the need for additional provision in future, to inform Local Plan policy
  • Advise on engagement
  • Advise on planning policy
