design leadership and guidance

We advise communities and local authorities on how to set out and deliver their design and sustainability aspirations. We develop design codes and design guides for sites, neighbourhoods, areas and organisations. In 2020 we worked with WECA and the four partner authorities to develop The West of England Placemaking Charter. We are expert in National Design Guidance including Building for a Healthy Life (the national housing design standard). We have developed Placemaking and Design training for the RIBA, the Design Network and Local Authorities.

Juliet chairs the North Somerset Design Review Panel for Design West and the Housing Excellence Panel for Creating Excellence. Formerly she led the research and development of CABE’s guidance on public buildings, masterplans, design competitions and engagement in public space.
