Section 6 Development Form and Design
“Further thinking and design analysis has been generated through the Look! St Albans project, which is a partnership with, amongst others, the Council and the St Albans Civic Society, to prepare design guidance for the City Centre. This initiative has generated huge community interest and support, with the outputs to set out the local community’s aspirations for new development in the City Centre, particularly for integrating contemporary development within St Albans unique historic context. It is anticipated that this information will provide developers with examples of built form, detailing and materials which exemplify St Albans character.”
Vanessa Gregory Chair of Look! St Albans comments: “The full power of the Look! St Albans workshop report comes from the fact the community initiated the work and endorsed the end product. It is a living document that has been used to inform the award winning MoSTA Design Charrette and will be used again this September”
