This is not an event hosted by Look!.
However Look! St Albans actively promotes meaningful community engagement and consider this independently chaired Community Design Review to be just that. Members of Team Look! will be taking part as individuals and we encourage you to do the same.
Again, this is not a Look! St Albans event which are open to all, places are limited to 40, so don’t hesitate book here and today! https://www.eventbrite.com/e/community-design-review-civic-centre-opportunity-site-south-planning-application-revisited-tickets-53258349156 * Should you experience any problem booking, or have any questions please contact Richard Shwe Deputy Chief Executive (Commercial & Development) Richard.Shwe@stalbans.gov.uk entitled Community Design Review
Please do read the letter of invitation from the council to find out more about what being a Community Design Review panel member entails. However do not be put off thinking others are better informed than you.
The council are looking for people ‘with a passion for good design in our City to spend an evening reviewing our work’.
YOU helped create our design codes. YOU helped design Oak Tree Gardens. YOU took part in the CCOS Masterplan Design Charrette https://www.lookstalbans.org/uploads/2/7/7/4/27749191/ip_156_low_res__nov_2016_ccos_design_charrette_design_concepts_report_28th_nov_2016__.pdf
The city centre is our collective front room, we have an opportunity to leave a lasting proud legacy for future generations. We live, work and entertain in our city centre, we know it best!
When it became apparent during the summer that the council, as now landowners of the majority of the site, wished to make enhancements to the plans already approved for the CCOS south site Team Look! suggested a Community Design Review. We are delighted they have taken forward that suggestion.
This we felt would be in keeping with the commitment ‘The Partnership’ made at the time of the CCOS Masterplan Design Charrette held in September 2016 ‘As landowners, we genuinely welcome this long-awaited opportunity to design, explore and test with you masterplan scenarios that will help us shape and coordinate a series of well designed, inspired and credible planning applications. We envisage bringing the individual planning applications back for further work on design detail beyond this masterplan work we are likely to be able to cover during this charrette.’ Full vision statement here. https://www.lookstalbans.org/uploads/2/7/7/4/27749191/development_partnerships_vision_statement_working_draft_v1.4.pdf
Team Look! have been assured that the architects working on the plans for CCOS South are referencing both our community co-authored design codes http://www.weebly.com/uploads/2/7/7/4/27749191/look_st_albans_final_design_workshop_report_jan_2013.pdf and the outcome of the Civic Centre Opportunity Site Masterplanning design charrette http://www.lookstalbans.org/1/post/2016/10/-the-outcome-from-the-recent-design-charrette-for-the-civic-centre-opportunity-site-is-published.html
