Independent Design Review Panel Members for the Newham Design Review Panel

Newham is of increasing importance to London and the national economy: strategically placed to support the growth of housing and industrial capacity in the city and influence the economic and social evolution of the capital over the coming decades. Through our Community Wealth Building Strategy, we are ensuring that new investment contributes to long-term prosperity, wellbeing and fairness for all our residents, and responds to the Climate Emergency. This means an approach to planning, housing delivery and regeneration that ensures Newham’s growth as an environmentally and socially sustainable borough is achieved.

Our Design Review Panel has a vital role, because every new development built and every place created has the potential to improve quality of life, contribute to the local economy and enhance the environment. Since we established the Design Review Panel in 2007 its members have diligently ensured that functional, sustainable and attractive buildings and places are delivered for Newham residents.
