Design In Life
Last month saw a plethora of key publications emerging on design
Last month saw a plethora of key publications emerging on design, following on from the National Design Guide we reported on back in October. First there has been a suite of documents from the National Infrastructure Commission dealing with design principles for nationally significant development projects, such as the North Lincolnshire Energy Park project we are engaged on. Then there is the final report from the Government’s Building Better, Building Beautiful Commission. And finally there is the housing design audit report for England by University College London on behalf of the CPRE and Place Alliance.
What all these reports have in common is the aim of improving design in new development which it appears is at a very low base whatever the scale and type of project.
At Northern Planners we are proud to say that this is an objective we share with the various authors and something we strive to deliver in everything we do.
