PART 1: Councillor CPD 2 – Layout, streets and parking

Councillor CPD 2: Layout, streets and parking

Drawing on the characteristics of well-designed places, as outlined in the recently published National Design Guide, this two-part online Councillor CPD learning event will explore how we evaluate the design quality of major applications in relation to Layout, streets and parking.

We will examine the design quality of major applications in relation to the following areas:

  • Movement – accessible places for all which are easy to move around sustainably
  • Uses – local services and facilities mixed and integrated within development
  • Lifespan – places and buildings which are adaptable and made to last

Delivered by:

  • Dr Gillian Horn, Architect and Researcher
  • Jade Huang, Architect and Design Advisor, Design South East
  • Laura Lewis-Davies, Learning Manager, Design South East

The event will include:

  • A live one-hour introductory webinar
  • Electronic resources and suggested further reading
  • A follow up live one-hour online discussion

 Key details:

  • Date: Tuesday 08 September 2020
  • Time: 6pm-7pm (login from 5:55pm for a 6pm start)
  • Location: Online – We will be using Zoom as the online conferencing platform
