DSE to establish new Kingston Panel

DSE is establishing a new design review panel on behalf of the London Borough of Kingston upon Thames and is seeking leading built environment professionals to join. The panel will review all new development proposals in Kingston over a certain threshold.

Like many outer London boroughs Kingston faces tremendous development pressures and faces the challenge of accommodating higher density development in a context of traditional suburbs and town centres. DSE have been helping Kingston face these challenges for some time but a dedicated panel will ensure there are a core of experts that really get to know the borough, its character and challenges, and can provide consistent advice to the council and developers.

Kingston is the latest local authority to commission DSE to develop and manage its design review panel.  This arrangement combines the benefits of a dedicated borough panel with the independence, experience and expertise that DSE can offer.

Anyone interested in joining the panel should contact sarah@designsoutheast.org or phone 01634 401166 to request a recruitment pack.  The deadline for applications is 30th October.
