This service will support a small number of selected Local Authorities to develop spatial plans for places which prioritise decarbonisation.
One of our key areas of work is to provide advice on design - A&DS supports investment in homes and public buildings, and everything in between.
We work with partners to ensure that design becomes central to how we plan our places - to demonstrate the value of design.
Learning: A&DS offers a number of ways to share good practice, build connections and support and develop confidence in new ways to approach things.
A&DS supports communities, providing advice and support and we promote the benefits of community engagement and share examples of good work.
One of our priorities is to improve the design quality of our public spaces and infrastructure to support wellbeing.
A&DS has made the delivery of more and better homes a priority - supporting inclusive growth through more and better housing.
