Croydon Council is looking for design review panel members and chair roles to join its team in London.
Croydon Council has opened applications for new members of its multidisciplinary design review panel, offering expert guidance on significant planning, public space, regeneration and development projects in the borough.
The design review panel provides independent advice and carries out reviews on all major development proposals in Croydon.
The council is seeking 24 high-calibre panellists and three chairs to replace our first panel which started work in 2016.
New panellists will provide impartial advice to help assess the quality and merits of key development proposals, building on the council’s award-winning approach to planning and placemaking. This approach includes actively working with developers and other partners at the earliest possible stage.
In particular, the council is looking for candidates with expertise in planning, landscape architecture, urban design, architecture, conservation, engineering, place making, viability, sustainability and culture.
The council also welcomes applications from a diverse range of candidates to reflect Croydon’s varied communities and needs.
The re-procurement of Croydon’s design review panel comes at an exciting time for the borough as it begins a busy programme of transformation, with an emphasis on enhancing and building on existing local character.
This is a fantastic opportunity for those interested in shaping the future of Croydon. You will be responsible for giving expert multi-disciplinary advice, championing high-quality design, placemaking objectives and good growth, and ensuring proposals are contextually grounded and add value to local communities and environment – both built and natural, socio-economic and cultural.
Please note, applications will open on Tuesday 27th September.
The opportunity will close at 10:30am on Friday 28th October 2022.
The expected contract award will be on Tuesday 6th December 2022.
