Design Review Panel

The Redbridge Design Review Panel has been established to help promote good growth and the highest quality in new development. The panel is made up of 21 independent and experienced professionals, in the fields of architecture, urban design, landscape architecture, community engagement, sustainability, and heritage.

The Redbridge Design Review Panel provides expert advice to applicants, council officers and the planning committee during the pre-application process, and by commenting on planning applications.

The panel is provided by Frame Projects and is funded independently of the council. Applicants are referred to the panel by the council as an external service and fees are paid to Frame Projects. If we refer an application to the panel, the design of the proposal will be assessed, and the panel will provide advice on design quality.
