The British Design Council announced the launch of a national survey from April to June that will elicit a wide range of industry views to assess how best to drive high-quality design at the heart of regeneration, renewal and community planning. It will review the services of its new partner Commision for Architecture and the Built Environment (CABE), and include recommendations of new market models for design reviews and design support that meets the needs of the public and communities in the UK.
The review will be conducted by Peter Bishop, a visiting professor in Architecture and the Built Environment at Nottingham Trent University. Chaired by Paul Finch, the Advisory Group will offer connections to different parts of the sector to ensure that diverse views are expressed, and provide guidance and expert input. An in-house expert support team will include the new Design Council CABE Director of Design, Diane Haigh.
“Design Reviews and other forms of support such as enabling within local communities are an essential component of the planning and development system," said David Kester, Chief Executive of the Design Council. "There is a bedrock of experience and knowledge across the sector that we can build on for the future, and it’s essential that we do so. This consultation is a rare opportunity to listen to people’s opinions and suggestions, and create a system that is truly responsive to the needs of our communities, economy and changing planning system.”
The report is scheduled to be published by late summer 2011.
