Delivering Urban Equality - Time to get Serious
In January 2020 Place Alliance & Partners launched Delivering Urban Quality – time to get serious pamphlet.
The pamphlet sets out the case for a Design Quality Unit for England and is a joint initiative of The Academy of Urbanism, Civic Voice, CPRE, Design Council, Place Alliance, Trees & Design Action Group and the Urban Design Group.
Following the work of the Building Better Building Beautiful Commission and the findings in A Housing Design Audit for England, the initiative is calling for a step change in the Government’s focus on, and attention to, design quality. As the Covid-crisis has starkly revealed, the quality of our built environment is critical to our everyday sense of well-being, and will impact profoundly on the future success of our nation. It’s time to get serious about design quality!
