By Design, Urban Design in the Planning System Summary


By Design, Urban Design in the Planning System: Towards Better Practice by Department.of the Environment,Transport & Regional Affairs

"We hope this guide will prompt both experts and relative newcomers to the field to think more deeply and carefully about the many complex issues that urban design is concerened with and to translate those thoughts into exciting and creative responses to design challenges. We believe that if it succeeds it will help to improve the quality of people's lives." - Nick Raynsford MP, Minister for Housing and Planing and Stuart Lipton, Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment. This guide has been published to promote higher standards in urban design and provide sound, practical advice to help implement the Government's commitment to good design, as set out in "Planning Policy Guidance Note 1 General Policy and Principles". It encourages those who influence and shape development decisions to think more deeply and sensitively about the living environments being created.The three central messages of the guide are: Good design is important everywhere, not least in helping to bring rundown, neglected places back to life; While the planning system has a key role to play in delivering better design, the creation of successful places depends on the skills of designers and the vision and commitment of those who employ them; and, No two places are identical and there is no such thing as a blueprint for good design. Good design always arises from a thorough and caring understanding of place and context. The guide is relevant to all aspects of the built environment, including the design of buildings and spaces, landscapes and transport systems. It has implications for planning and development at every scale: in villages as well as cities and for a street and its neighbourhood as well as regional planning strategies.
