Design is currently a hot topic of debate, with the Government consulting on a national design guide and the use of design codes to deliver ‘beauty’.

The requirement for development to achieve a well-designed and safe built environment has long been a key principle of sustainable development, but the Government’s commitment to the concept of beauty and a new set of tools to deliver it signals a step-change in approach.

Beauty means different things to different people and so what opportunities and challenges do the changes being proposed present for different sectors? Or are the tools to achieve beautiful places already in place but by a different name?

Anna joined Catesby Estates in September 2019 with over 19 years of Urban Design and Masterplanning experience in both public and private sector roles. Her roles have included: Director for Savills Urban Design Studio, Birmingham; Associate Director at Barton Willmore, Reading; and Urban Designer for Wycombe District Council.

Anna holds a Masters in Urban Design from Oxford Brookes University, and Postgraduate Diploma in Town and Country Planning from University College London and a BA (Hons) in Urban Planning and Management from Nottingham University.
