Launch of the Andover Estate Neighbourhood Plan

The Andover Estate Neighbourhood Plan launched in September with key note speeches from Ken Bartlett & Stephen Hill, advisors to the Community Land Trust and Sean McLaughlin Director of Housing and Adult Social Services, LB Islington.

Open-City's involvement has included guiding the community through the process of producing a development plan for any future investment in their estate, working with RS Studio & Annie Lennox Landscape Architects. Through Design Awareness Training, Open-City has prepared the community forum so that they can review the design proposals put before them and constructively inform the vision for their estate.

Open-City currently works on a variety of local community projects involving regeneration and development projects?

Open-City’s Design Awareness Training demystifies the urban design process instilling confidence in discussing design proposals and understanding the basic principles of urban design.

Open-City’s Design Review Training goes one step further, preparing community members with the skills to review urban design proposals against the principles of good urban design.
