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.


Thank you for sending through the design review letter. 

We are very pleased you consider the progress to be significant and we thank you for your constructive comments during both reviews. It’s been a great process which has helped us put together an exciting scheme we can all be proud of.

The design team will meet to make the final few touches next week and then we will submit for full planning approval shortly after. We will keep in touch with you to show you the scheme is progressing.

Once again thank you to you and the other members for their invaluable input and we wish you all the best for the future.


Excellent Design Review today. Good panel selection and very helpful advice to the applicant. Please thank them all.
