Ar­chi­tec­ture ad­vice for big projects

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Family Announcements -

LARGE build­ing projects in Ash­ford will now be of­fered help and ad­vice from a panel of ar­chi­tec­tural ex­perts.

The group will be known as the Re­gional De­sign Panel in Ash­ford and will in the fu­ture be able to of­fer ad­vice to plan­ning com­mit­tee mem­bers and de­vel­op­ers for ap­prov­ing and im­prov­ing the de­sign of ma­jor build­ing projects in the town.

The idea was orig­i­nally mooted at the beginning of the year but has now re­ceived the green light from ex­ec­u­tive mem­bers at a meet­ing last week.

Plan­ning and de­vel­op­ment boss Richard Alder­ton said: “The chal­lenge is to take ad­van­tage of this pool of ex­perts; ben­e­fit from the Kent Ar­chi­tec­ture Cen­tre han­dling the ad­min­is­tra­tion of the process; but also in­ject a strong lo­cal di­men­sion so that the board learns about Ash­ford over time and is more use­ful as a re­sult.”
