Event description

Description

Suffolk Design is entering an intense period of discussion as we seek to gather the views of key stakeholders in the built and natural environment of Suffolk.

A first workshop, held on 5th October, brought together Suffolk’s planning authorities to reflect on the existing tools in use and to define how to address the challenges ahead and ensure design quality, particularly in new housing.

At this second workshop, the private sector, a wider range of local authority departments, statutory consultees and community leaders join the conversation, collaborating on and helping to shape design guidance for the county.

Through short talks, group working and feedback sessions we will be addressing the question of how to deliver design quality in addition to speed, volume and scale. We will work with you to:

  • Set priorities for updating design policy and guidance for the county,

  • Decide what policies and procedures should be consistent across Suffolk’s local authorities,

  • Define what might be included in a continuing programme of design CPD for the public and private sectors in the county.


We will also explore how a web-based portal to access the wealth of, studies, policy and guidance in Suffolk might look and function.

Suffolk Design is a major initiative by all the local authorities in Suffolk, supported by funding from the Ministry of Housing, Local Government and Communities, to improve design quality in the built environment. Over the coming months we will be working to produce design guidance for Suffolk that is committed to delivering good growth; growth that is integrated into the County’s settlements and landscapes and that responds to context. Alongside this will be programme of learning and networking events.
