The National Planning Policy Framework strongly emphasises place-making, design quality and the role of communities in shaping their environments. More recently, the Farrell Review positions ‘Place’ at the centre of recommendations for future of the built environment.
Set within this policy context, this seminar will focus on ways to deliver high quality places through Local Plans. Speakers will examine the importance of local context, historic character, natural resources and the aspirations of local communities that contribute positively to making places better for people.
The event will be facilitated by Peter Studdert (Planning and Design Consultant and former Director of Planning at Cambridge City Council), who will also speak alongside representatives from Brighton and Hove Borough Council, Ashford Borough Council, PCKO Architects and Design South East.
Aimed at Heads of Planning, Senior Planning Officers, Development Managers, and Local Councillors, this seminar will support you to deal effectively with shaping your Local Plans by having the right policies and guidance in place to set the design expectations of your area.
By the end of this seminar participants will have:
- Understood the implications of design in the NPPF
- Determinedthe policy context for planning and design guidance, and development management
- Explored how planning authorities can raise design standards through design review, design guidance, and design codes
- Reflected on how they can apply this knowledge to their own Local Plans
The event is free to Kent Design members within their membership package allocation. Additional places are available at £95 + VAT. Kent Design Members can book places by emailing email@example.com.
