In order to obtain planning consent for our clients site, we needed to gain the support of Design Midlands, in order to comply with local planning policy. Our practice went through the Design Review, with the team at Design Midlands, on two separate occasions.
The entire process was extremely constructive and the review panel were all friendly, knowledgeable, approachable and all comments received were very positive. The review approach assisted our design philosophy and was certainly the driving force that assisted us in achieving the design put forward for planning consent.
We would certainly recommend using Design Midlands and urge all designers to embrace the process and treat the panel members as an extension of your design team.
