The South West Design Review Panel is a proven mechanism for raising design standards. Created in 2005, SWDRP reviews development projects from all localities within the South West. We provide independent, multi-disciplinary, expert advice – a candid friend, supporting whenever we can, seeking explanations, discussing options, identifying opportunities, and sometimes calling for a rethink.
The Panel is based at Creating Excellence and is part of the national Design Network. The National Planning Policy Framework highlights the importance of Design Review in paragraph 62 and says that a Design Review can be of most benefit if used as early as possible in the evolution of schemes.
We bring together a panel of experts specific to the project under consideration in order to provide the very best service.
