About The Event

As you know Suffolk Design is a major initiative by all the local authorities in Suffolk, supported by funding from the Ministry of Housing, Local Government and Communities, to improve design quality in the built environment. Over the next year we will be working to produce design guidance to help developers, designers and planners work together to help the County grow and make it fit for the future while maintaining its unique qualities and identity. Alongside this will be programme of learning and networking events.

We are now entering an intense period of discussion as we seek to gather the views of key stakeholders in the built and natural environment of Suffolk. We are planning four roundtables where leading individuals will meet to debate hot topics about the future development of Suffolk and two major workshops where a wide range of people working in the built environment will come together to build a consensus about design objectives for the County and how we work together to achieve them. All these discussions will help shape the design guidance. Alongside these there will be online surveys and engagement with the wider Suffolk public. The first of these online surveys can be found on the website.

Technology is transforming the way we move, communicate, shop, learn work and play; we will need to think very differently about how we plan throughout the county, not least in rural areas; how do we evolve planning to address ever changing technology?

The discussion will be held under the Chatham House rule. This is an invitation only event and availability is very limited. If you would like to join in this discussion and wish to receive an invitation please register your interest below and a member of our team will be in touch.
