Councillors are invited to join us on the 20th October when we will discussing how to promote and achieve good design in your borough.
We aim to help practitioners create and maintain well-designed, good quality places. We do this by offering training, advice, networking events, design surgeries and online resource.
UDL is supported by Transport for London and we work very closely with these organisations, helping to ensure our training and networking services reflect the most up to date policies, research, best practice examples and funding criteria.
We have been effective in playing a significant role in increasing skills and directly improving the quality of places. We are not a commercial training provider and work hard to ensure all income we receive is used to support our members.
The best plans draw on the ideas and experiences of many different people; which is why, together with the GLA, we are hosting a special event for designers to discuss what the next London Plan should say about design.
UDL carried out an annual survey to help us plan our program next year. We wanted to know what topics people wanted us to cover in 2017/2018, so we asked our members. Here are the results from over 100 responses.
