Meet RTPI South West Young Planners

Join us on the 22 February to hear from the Chair of the South West Design Review Panel - Jonathan Braddick.

Jonathan will present on how Design Review Panels evolved, and how they now operate to provide multidisciplinary feedback on proposals (Urban design, architecture, landscaping) to both private applicants and local planning authorities. He will provide an insight into how design review panels can influence the outcome of planning applications, and will provide a number of examples of how and where DRP feedback has been applied (i.e. para 79 house, commercial, large scale housing).

Jonathan will then take time to answer your live questions during ‘Ask the Expert’.  This is your chance to ask those questions or points of clarification you have always wanted to know.
