According to the corporation, the 16 members of the Quality Review Panel will ‘test fundamental design principles of planning proposals both at pre-application stage and as part of the application process itself’.
Among the first projects which the panel is set to review is the upcoming application for Chobham Manor - the new 870-home neighbourhood designed by Make Architects, PRP Architects, Muf, Karakusevic Carson and NORD.
