The Design Council CABE has announced financial support for its design review affiliated network across England. The support comes in the form of grants to the eight affiliated design review panels across England for 2011-12 to enable them to run local design review, alongside and closely aligned to CABE’s national design review service.
This marks the first funding programme to the affiliated network members. This grant will enable the delivery of 250 design reviews of schemes across England in the next year.
Communities and Local Government is providing the funding for the continuation of key CABE services including local and national design reviews. Each of the affiliated panels will receive £65,000, which will cover a proportion of its running costs for the current financial year (to March 2011). Design Council CABE will continue to review nationally significant schemes.
