New NPPF Workshop with NCC Urban Design Team

  • Nottingham City Council Loxley House Nottingham UK (map)

In line with the recently revised National Planning Policy Framework, the Urban Design Team in Nottingham City Council is working on a series of quality audits and drafting some initial recommendations on design quality for housing schemes. These will become part of the Local Plan as Supplementary Planning Documents. We would like to hear from you to know how this work could best support you during the design and planning process, and we would welcome your input.

Event description:

Presentation 1 - 5min: introduction to the framework

Presentation 2 - 15min: Explanation of audits, results and the guide

Workshop: What are the constraints you have faced during the design and delivery of housing projects? What are the major causes of delay? How can we best support applicants and designers through the process?
