Best Practice Design

Over the past year the Government has placed an increasing importance on the value of design, place making and the quality of the public environment. The launch of the National Design Guide and Living with Beauty, (the report produced by the Building Better, Building Beautiful Commission) reinforce the aspirations of the updated Essex Design Guide.
