HTVF – Character, Quality & Design in Neighbourhood Planning and Beyond

27 February - 09:30 - 17:00

This seminar-workshop will explore the role of design in Neighbourhood Planning and other policy-making contexts. Starting with the role of Village Design Statements and communities in capturing the character of their localities, delegates will hear about:

  • Locality’s new Toolkit Achieving well-designed places through neighbourhood planning, and funding support for greater design aspirations
  • The National Trust’s new community toolkit Planning for Heritage
  • The role of pattern books in moving from seeing character to identifying design policies
  • How top housing architects are responding to the challenge of growth and local charcater – the Distinctively Local campaign
  • Best practice in writing design policies for neighbourhood plans with a strong heritage backdrop.
  • There will also be a hands-on workshop session to explore the issues.
