The Localism Bill aims to provide communities with a greater influence on local planning matters by allowing them to prepare Neighbourhood Development Plans. Architecture centres such as Open-City can act as independent advisors steering negotiations toward a productive conversation that result in effective local design policy and high quality local development proposals.
Open-City will highlight its experience of formulating an effective and highly successful model of engagement around planning and development with residents and planning councillors in London, and how this can be replicated elsewhere.
