The Government states that well-designed places should be functional, support mixed uses and tenures, include successful public spaces, be adaptable and resilient, have a distinctive character, be attractive, and encourage ease of movement. To reflect the emphasis Ministers have been placing on good design in recent years, a wealth of guidance has been published including the National Design Guide, the National Model Design Code, and a programme of pilots to test local design codes has been undertaken. Updates have also been made to the National Planning Policy Framework.

Part of the TCPA New Communities Group series, this webinar will be an opportunity to hear about research, published by the Bartlett School of Planning, about the evaluation and lessons from the first 15 local design code pilots. But it will also be a chance to hear perspectives from the private sector, as well as local authorities, who have been working with them to improve the quality of new communities, and how this knowledge can be applied in other places.
