National Design Guide

The Ministry of Housing Communities and Local Government recently launched the National Design Guide (NDG), a document welcomed by many in all sectors of the construction industry. But despite some positive reviews, the release managed to generate more questions than answers: What is the weight of National Guidance? How can local authorities build up on it? How can design quality be enforced through planning? What skills and resources are necessary to make this meaningful? How is this going to help communities with a place-based interest? What is beauty? And the list goes on and on.

Join this event to find the NDG influence on:

  • Statutory Duties
  • Local Authority powers
  • Built Environment duties on Climate Change, Public Health and Social Resilience
  • Developer’s responsibilities - House builders’ in-house design guides
  • Quality assessment systems
