The Thames Valley is one of the fastest growing parts of the country and Design South East was commissioned by the Berkshire local authorities in 2013 to provide design review services to help balance quantity and quality. We work with the six unitary authorities that make up Berkshire; Bracknell Forest, Reading, Slough, West Berkshire, Wokingham and Windsor & Maidenhead.
We have reviewed some major developments, particularly office and mixed-use proposals in the centre of Reading and around its football stadium, higher density developments in Maidenhead town centre and council-led and private sector housing schemes in Slough town centre, and proposals for major site allocations in Wokingham.
For more information and to discuss how we can help
Please contact the appropriate council or contact us directly.
We are also happy to provide background information on the service for applicants and will manage the review once agreed by the council.
