Yesterday saw the publication of Our Future in Place the outcome of Sir Terry Farrell’s review of architecture and the built environment.

You can now download the full document from farrellreview.co.uk

The publication of the Farrell Review is an opportune moment to take stock, consider new thinking and identify areas to address in the challenges facing architecture and the built environment.

Good quality places matter, and the Review quite rightly identifies the value of a PLACE (Planning, Landscape, Architecture, Conservation and Engineering) based approach to secure the benefits of good design.

The Cabe team’s fifteen years delivering direct support to all participants in the planning process has demonstrated the importance of taking this approach.

As the national, independent and cross-disciplinary built environment body we will continue to work with central and local government, industry and local communities to deliver great quality places and identify areas of the Review that can be taken forward.
