DESIGN REVIEW REPORTS

After the review, DCFW will issue a detailed written report within 14 working days, summarising the views and recommendations of the Panel.

Schemes that have been considered in confidence by the Commission prior to a planning application being submitted, will subsequently become public following a planning application or via consultation/the media. The Design Review report will then be made public with the provision that it applies to the scheme at the time it was reviewed.

The report will be sent to the primary contact and copied to all those who attended the meeting as well as the Local Authority. We offer the opportunity for a follow-up meeting with members of the presenting team to assist with interpretation of the Design Review report and the implementation of our recommendations. Projects which are not in the public domain [pre-planning] will be treated as confidential. In all other cases the reports will be made publicly available.
