Design:Midlands want to reassure that we are taking coronavirus seriously and will wish to avoid putting our associates, Panel members, local authority and developer/design colleagues at any risk – your safety is our utmost priority in delivering our services to you.

For now, we will not be holding face to face events, but will be offering remote-based support instead. We will be discussing with those that have booked onto design reviews on how this can be delivered. We will adapt design support on any new commissions received in this interim period.

Training events will be postponed until later in the year – and delegates will receive separate notification on that.
If you have any queries about our approach, or suggestions on how we can best continue to provide support, please let us know.

We hope the current crisis is not affecting you, your loved-ones or your business too much and that we can get back to normal soon. Thank you.
Project Type:Site Design Advice Notes

Site Design Advice Notes – Broxtowe Borough Council

We were appointed by Broxtowe Borough Council to provide evidence and deliver design review workshops to inform sustainability appraisal work and to help secure greater public buy-in for housing.

The team provided heritage advice and evidence in support of appraising reasonable alternatives for site allocations. Our multidisciplinary Design Review Panels were involved in a number of workshops, providing design support and advice on sites within Broxstowe with potential for residential development.

Site Design Advice Notes were produced following a series of workshops with Broxtowe Borough Council. The workshops involved setting up a panel with a range of disciplines which included urban design, landscape architect, highways and conservation working with the planning authority, landowners, agents to:

  • Identify key issues for resolution and development;
  • Agree a set of design principles for the site in an illustrative form; and
  • Set out an indicative schedule of follow-on work that will need to be undertaken should this site be developed.

The workshops provided an opportunity to gain expert design advice at the site allocation stage, support local plan work, provide a clear steer for developers and improve the quality of the built environment.
