Essex Design Guide Shortlisted in the UK National GO Awards

26 Mar 2018

The Essex Design Guide has been shortlisted for a UK National GO Award 2018 in the category of GO Procurement Innovation/Initiative of the Year.

The Essex Design Guide 2018 was commissioned by the Essex Planning Officers' Assocation and delivered by Place Services.  It provides best practice guidance to planners and those interested in the provision of new housing developments.

Originally created in 1973, the latest version incorporates new themes including a focus on health and well-being and how active design principles can be used by town planners, architects,  housebuilders and local communities.

This is the second award nomination for the Essex Design Guide following its nomination for a Planning Award earlier this month.
