Design slant revealed to Corbyn’s cabinet

  • Comment

Jeremy Corbyn’s new shadow cabinet, unveiled this week, may have come under fire from the media, but his choices do reinforce the idea that Labour’s new leader is interested in design and place.

Lord Falconer, who Corbyn has retained as shadow justice secretary, was government design champion during the previous Labour administration, working closely with Cabe and overseeing a group of ministerial representatives tasked with improving urban design.

And back in 2009, Andy Burnham, now Corbyn’s shadow home secretary, helped launch the Labour government’s World Class Places document, an ambitious strategy under which every government department had to consider the importance of place-making.
