Design Review Panel Session 

A remote desktop design review can be provided, allowing smaller schemes, and schemes that require review outside of the pre-set available dates, to also benefit from design review panel feedback.

  • Payment is due at the time of reservation and bookings are only confirmed upon receipt of cleared funds payment


  • Once payment has been made bookings cannot be cancelled or postponed and are non-refundable.


  • Information is to be provided to the Panel using the blue  'Upload Files' button above. Once the information for review (& cleared funds payment) has been received by the Panel a written feedback document will be provided within 14 working days.


  • The Panel reserves the right to cancel or postpone a session.


  •  Feedback provided by the Panel is opinion and suggestion only, given by a Panel of volunteers, and does not constitute professional advice.

The Design Review Panel TM provides remote desktop design review. This service is ideal for projects that are at an early stage of the design development and can be used to gain preliminary fedback prior to booking a follow-up full design reveiw panel session.


Remote desktop design review panel sessions are also suitable for projects that have already received feedback at a full design reveiw panel session and require confimration that the initial feedback given by the Panel has been followed.


Having carried out a remote desktop desgn review for a proposed paragragh 79 house in Kent at the end of 2018, Rob Hughes (Planning Consultant at Hughes Planning) said:-

"We are delighted to have secured permission for our 14th Para 79 house approval in June 2019.  At the request of Dover District Council, we approached The Design Review Panel to undertake an independent review of our scheme and in the light of the positive comments that were received, this provided the necessary confidence and assurance to the Local Planning Authority that the proposals met the 'high bar' set by Para 79(e) of the National Planning Policy Framework.  We would like to thank the Panel for their invaluable role in assisting the design team in achieving approval for a fabulous scheme."
