Trying to ensure a greater degree of quality

Date: 18/8/2017

Following a partnership of homebuilders seeking to replace a 2006 outline application's section 106 agreement design code with a looser set of "principles" and remove the design review panel's involvement in the process Planning asks how often do developers of schemes seek to amend agreed design standards?

Paul Seddon, chief planner at Nottingham City Council and the Planning Officers Society's place-making spokesman, said local authorities usually used design codes to prevent "poor quality development". He added: "As a planner in local government, I take the view that all too often it's because of the track record of the volume housebuilders and the product that comes out. You're ensuring that a greater degree of quality is reached."
