Advisory service in Architecture, Town and Country Planning and Environment

> information and advice to inhabitants. Contact : contact@caue45.fr


In 1977, the law on Architecture created the “Conseils d’Architecture d’Urbanisme et de l’Environnement”, authorising each County Council in France to set up its own “CAUE”.
The purpose of the CAUE is to provide free advisory services for private individuals and local communities, intending to build, plan or transform a “space”, as well as to raise people’s awareness, including children, about architectural, town planning and environmental issues.
Each CAUE comprises a multidisciplinary technical team of architects, town planners, lansdcape architects, geographers and environmentalists.
