Event description
Glass-House Chats are one-hour themed sessions for an informal chat about engaging communities in design and placemaking.

About this event

Please take part in this survey to help shape our next events in the series.

Design review panels have become a valued tool in planning and development, bringing an independent critical eye to schemes, aiming to raise the standard of design and helping to ensure that development is appropriate to its context.

Some experimentation has been done with community design review panels, and there is a growing interest in this as a tool for effective community engagement in design and placemaking. However, there are different models and approaches that can be applied, which can achieve different objectives and outcomes.

It is sometimes hard to know where to start.

At this chat, we’ll be considering different approaches to setting up and managing community design review panels, and exploring the role they might play in informing high-quality design and placemaking.

Organiser The Glass-House Community Led Design

Organiser of Glass-House Chats: Community design review panels - how could they work?

The Glass-House Community Led Design is an independent national charity dedicated to connecting people with the design of their places and connecting design with people.

We support a diverse audience that includes local communities, organisations and businesses, developers, local authorities, design practices and others to work collaboratively on the design of buildings, open spaces, homes and neighbourhoods.

We provide hands-on support and training, share knowledge and learning, and inspire new thinking and debate through action research, events and resources.

We see design not only as a tool for creating great places, but also as a way to connect people and empower them with enhanced confidence, skills and a great sense of agency.
