Testimonial


"The introduction of Local Design Review will assist developers and architects to gain support for high quality schemes, as well as providing expert advice to Planning Committee members and Council officers when making the key decisions affecting the Borough. I am convinced that the result will be a raising of the quality of new developments in the Taunton Deane area.

 

The proposal now being implemented will meet my aspirations in providing a speedy, professional and cost effective Design Review service for the area".  - Tim Burton - Planning & Development Manager, Taunton Deane Borough Council - 2013
