The Local Authority Urban Design Forum (LAUDF) is a network for local authority practitioners involved in urban design to share ideas on current issues, to learn from each other’s experience and to build up resources for mutual benefit.
This newsletter covers the 11th LAUDF meeting. The theme Housing Delivery: From Masterplans to Plot Passports was chosen by the steering group. An agenda was then developed by the chairs Caroline Bell from East Dunbartonshire Council and Laura Robertson from Aberdeen City Council, with input from the steering group and Architecture and Design Scotland.
Presentations and learning exchange sessions were curated to enable sharing of knowledge and insights around issues including masterplans (at different scales), plots passports, design codes, tenure blind development, self-build, offsite construction and Simplified Planning Zones. The forum was attended by over 40 professionals from 18 local authorities and public bodies.
