In 2017 Look! St Albans Chair Vanessa Gregory was invited to write an article as one of a group of contributors for The Urban Design Groups http://www.udg.org.uk/ journal. As part of her introduction to the contributors Dr Noël James describes Vanessa’s article as follows, “Here in the UK, Vanessa Gregory gives us an inspiring look into what she describes affectionately as ‘muscular localism:’ how the devolution of planning has enabled an involved and engaged community to develop design codes. She shows how a community can be fully and professionally involved within the design process and that this is not just to mitigate a skills gap, but as an integral part of any design process.”
The journal is now available on the Urban Design Groups website here http://www.udg.org.uk/sites/default/files/publications/UD144_magazine.pdf Team Look! would like to thank Urban Design Group for asking Vanessa to contribute and suggest the collection of articles are well worth a read and are very much food for thought!
