This workshop will help to provide urban design knowledge for councillors, show how planning and design fit together, consider what makes a successful place so that our neighbourhoods are well designed; providing the homes, local facilities and amenities we need. By sharing experience we aim to provide the foundations to help elected members make justified decisions and create better places for all.
This workshop will be a helpful mentor for people who are not design experts and a refresher for those with design experience. During the workshop we will explore the challenges to securing joined up decisions on design and quality. The workshop will stimulate debate and take feedback that will contribute to the delivery of national policy.
