New 'self-sustaining' DC CABE launches London Design Review Panel

  • Comment

Design Council CABE has launched a new London design review panel aimed at local authorities and potential planning applicants in the capital

The new panel is part of the former government design watchdog’s bid to become ‘self-sustaining enterprise’.

The new direction would see DC CABE charge for design reviews and comes ahead of the withdrawal of its government funding from April this year.

It also follows Peter Bishop’s DC CABE review which recommended greater devolution, more design support, and services aimed at both private and public sectors.

Announcing the launch at MIPIM this week, chair Paul Finch (pictured) said delegates at the property summit ‘represent our current and future clients and
customers’.

The panel will commence at the start of next month and feature 20 members. It is understood 15 of the pannelists will also sit on the organisation’s national design review committee.

Last month, DC CABE announced it was ‘refreshing’ its network of design review panellists and enablers.

London design review members will be drawn from the new Built Environment Experts network which is currently being recruited.
