BRENT QUALITY REVIEW PANEL

As one of the most diverse and culturally rich boroughs in London, Brent is a dynamic and engaging place, with much to be proud of and celebrate. The Council is adopting a design-led approach to address the increasing challenges posed by climate change, the housing crisis and need for strategic infrastructure, to support our residents of today and tomorrow.
The Council’s aim is to create a more equal and affordable borough. We want to deliver high quality, sustainable places that people are proud to live in and to maximise opportunities to access good quality housing, employment, education and culture. The Quality Review Panel will assist councillors and officers in considering new proposals from the early outset of discussions, to support these aims.

Brent has recently updated its design guidance and requires the use of a design review panel on major developments. It has also signed up to the London Design Review Charter, which supports the Council’s commitment to good design and ensures that new developments create places of high quality and lasting value.
The Quality Review Panel is chaired jointly by Tom Greenall, Director at DSDHA, and Kaye Stout, Partner at Pollard Thomas Edwards.
