Cities are the powerhouses of the UK economy, and are key to the country’s long-term growth and success.
In response to City Deals, Design Council has developed a comprehensive design service for city authorities that brings together local knowledge and world-class expertise to help deliver high-quality, prosperous places.
Our integrated and bespoke city service provides early-stage design support, review and training. We engage city officers, elected members, developers, investors and key stakeholders to build expertise and confidence to effectively deliver sustainable economic growth.
This comprehensive service delivers continuous and long-term effective support to cities, City Deals and Strategic Economic Plans.
I encourage cities across the country to look at how they could use the Design Council’s new cities programme.Greg Clark, Minister for Science, Universities and Cities - October 2014
