Design Review is an independent, impartial process for evaluating the design quality of significant schemes that will have an impact on their environment and the town, cityscape, or public space around them.
The importance of Design Review is specifically highlighted in the National Planning Policy Framework.
Cabe Design Review is managed by an experienced professional team with the input of a panel of multi-disciplinary built environment experts. They assess the design quality of a proposal, offering constructive critical advice to ensure that good quality design is at the core of the proposal.
Since the panel was established in 1999, it has offered advice on more than 3,500 strategic projects across England.
Our impartial process offers designers and clients invaluable feedback from fellow professionals. It guarantees developers the best possible independent advice – reducing risk and expense by identifying weaknesses early on, or giving confidence that the design is on the right track.
The process is managed to the high standard established in The 10 principles of Design Review.
