Oxford City Council in partnership with Cabe at Design Council has established the Oxford Design Review Panel.
Design Review is a tried and tested method of promoting good design and is a cost-effective and efficient way to improve quality. This offers independent, impartial advice on the design of new buildings, landscapes and public spaces.
Design Review is an essential part of the planning process. The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) reinforced the role of Design Review in ensuring high standards of design. Design Review also plays a vital role in helping local authorities meet their statutory duty under the Planning Act 2008, 'to have regard to the desirability of achieving good design'.

We have two politically balanced area planning committees (West Area and East Area), each consisting of nine councillors, to decide planning applications at monthly meetings.
We also have a Planning Review Committee that reaches decisions on planning applications that have been considered by one of the two area planning committees but where the area planning committee's decision has subsequently been called into this committee by a minimum of 12 councillors.
Our planning and building control teams are happy to offer advice but you may find it helpful to look at the following websites:
Planning Portal - Use this site to learn about planning and building regulations, find out about development near you, appeal against a decision and research government policy.
Planning Aid - Planning Aid provides free, independent and professional town planning advice and support to communities and individuals who cannot afford to pay planning consultant fees. It complements the work of local planning authorities, but is wholly independent of them.
