Special Interest Groups

RIBA South/South East's Special Interest Groups:

  • are forums for experts and for those wishing to learn more
  • keep the regional office informed about issues of concern in their specialist areas
  • provide insights and advice when needed
  • in their specialist fields, guide and shape the region's activities such as awards and conferences.

Planning Group

The Planning Group guides the region's response to planning issues. It recently provided themes and direction to conferences in Oxford and Winchester on the emerging opportunities offered by localism.

Conservation Groups
