Description

Achieving better design – what can councillors do?

Planning issues are a big part of most councillor’s workload. Balancing residents’ strongly held opinions with planning policy and the need for new housing can be a major challenge.

How can local authorities secure better designed homes and places in the current context? And what role can elected members play? The new version of the NPPF has recently be released. What does it have to say about design?

Kent Design is offering a series of events specifically for Councillors to help you understand the relationship between design and planning, what your local authority can be doing to secure good design and how you can encourage best practice. They are also an opportunity to network with other councillors and discuss the challenges you face working with the planning system.

These events will also mark the launch of the Councillor’s Companion for Design in Planning a new guide from the Design Network to support councillors in their role as local design leaders.

Each event is being hosted by one of our local authorities but is open to councillors from all over Kent, including Medway.

Delivered by:

David Tittle, Head of Design Advice, Design South East
