An event for people thinking about applying to take part in the Government's phase two design code pilot programme
The Office for Place, as part of MHCLG, is inviting local authorities to take part in a second phase of design code pilot programme. This event is to introduce local authorities to the phase two pilot programme and help local authorities decide if they want to bid to be a pilot.
The Office for Place is seeking up to 10 local authorities, from counties to districts, to receive a share of £1 million and receive expert advice and support. Successful bidding teams will be supported to develop a detailed proposal and process for developing and producing a design code with an aim to develop best practice design codes and processes that can serve as exemplars to others. Neighbourhood planning groups are also welcomed to bid to be pilots to establish design codes in this pilot programme .
This event is for local government people to help decide whether to submit an application. It is NOT training on the design code itself.
The deadline for submission of expressions of interest for the pilot programme is 13 September 2021, 5pm.
