  3. Hi Ben, apologies not to respond sooner - we don't get notifications from this forum. I hope members will respond individually themselves - but we are also considering an LI response, however this depends upon the feedback we receive from members. We've not yet received anything...

  6. Urban Design London are looking for built environment experts. Details below: Urban Design London Design Review Panel Refresh We’re looking to appoint a diverse group of built-environment experts including landscape and environmental design professionals to better address the key role the natural environment plays in creating healthy, resilient, and sustainable places. Our refreshed, refocused panel will be made available to local authorities to fill any gaps they may have in expertise. We are keen to build a diverse panel and are seeking to recruit people from a range of ethnic backgrounds. Our new recruits will benefit from training and mentoring to ensure they grow into the role and become future design champions. We are also keen to hear from candidates who are less experienced in participating in Design Review. We pay panel members for their contribution and anticipate their time commitment to be 3 to 4 half days per year. Payment is £250 for a half day for panel members. The panel chair will be paid £500. If you would like to apply, please send a one-page CV and a cover letter clearly stating your skills, expertise and experience in shaping great places, and what you believe makes a good design review to info@urbandesignlondon.com. You can email us if you have any queries about the application. Applications to be received by 1st September The UDL Team
