The Barnsley Civic Trust Talk on Tuesday 27th November will tell us about the work of the independent Design Review Panel set up in Barnsley. It is made up of highly regarded designers, architects, landscape architects and artists and is completely independent of the Council.
Its role is to review the design of schemes referred to it by the Council and to give expert advice as to how they can improved. It has advised on all the major schemes in the town centre.
