  3. The CABE housing audit 100 schemes in each audit: • By top 10 home builders • In average price band • Schemes of 20+ dwellings • Completed within last 3 years • Mix of size and locations • Post-occupancy survey

  5. Making the case for good design

  6. Firmness Will it last? Functionality Does it work? What is ‘good design’? Delight Does it look good?

  7. Best practice: the policy framework PPS 12:Integrating sustainability appraisals into the planning process PPS 1:Sustainable development as the core principle underpinning planning PPS 3 & CSH:Housing Manual for StreetsCollaborating on design across departments

  8. Best practice: the policy framework PPS 1 PPG 3 Code for Sustainable Homes Lifetime Homes Secure by Design Safer Place Local LDFs Local SPDs

  31. Quality targets & planning assessments • English Partnerships: 14/20 on all EP Land • CLG Housing audit in the Thames Gateway: • 2010: 50% good (14/20) or very good (16/20), nil poor (<10/20) • 2015: 100% good or very good, nil poor • Housing Corporation: 12/20 for all grant supported housing • (10/20 for rural/street fronted infill schemes) • Planning authorities: Core strategy, SPD, planning discussions, monitoring

  32. Assessment evidence guidance

  33. Between 08/09 and 10/11 CABE is training at least 500 BfL assessors: at least one embedded assessor working in every LPA in England additional independent assessors working in a supporting role. Accredited assessors work will be governed by a code of conduct covering issues such as monitoring, remuneration and conflicts of interest. During the pre-planning stage, these Building for Life assessors will: produce a full evaluation report and BfL score (x/20) for development proposals support other assessors as a moderator After completion, Building for Life assessors will: feed in to assessments for annual monitoring returns indicator H6 Accredited Assessors:What you would be doing

  34. Your work as an assessor will usually conclude with an evidenced evaluation report, which explains the score you have arrived at and lists the relevant evidence. This report might be referred to by: planning officers or by the planning committee funders or landowners who have committed to a minimum standard researchers, panel and final judges for the Building for Life awards staff working on annual monitoring reports All evaluation reports, including the score, must be logged by the BfL partnership. CABE will carry out random spot checks of BfL evaluation reports for quality control: at least 1 evaluation report per assessor per annum. Accredited Assessors:What you would be doing

  35. To gain accreditation, you should: go to download the example Design and Access statement and the reporting template assume the role of BfL assessor working in the local planning authority and complete an assessment report for the scheme submit your report to enquiries@buildingforlife.orgby February 28 The Building for Life team will check your assessment against the target score provide feedback on the way in which the score is evidenced quantify the variance across assessors for future monitoring send you a formal letter of accreditation and a code of conduct Accredited Assessors:Homework for candidates!
