The aim of the Environmental Design Review Panel (EDRP) is to provide expert, impartial design advice and guidance on a variety of highway, public realm and development schemes to improve the quality of our built environment and help us achieve more sustainable places.
This is ever more critical as we respond to the climate breakdown.
Our diverse range of expert panellists include ecologists, landscape architects, drainage and highway engineers, inclusive access experts and architects. The panel provides reviews that are not routinely provided by local authority or other design review panels. This means we review development schemes, street and public realm schemes and large-scale transport and infrastructure projects where there is no local panel to do this or where clients require specialist support in areas that are not available in-house.
Over the last 10 years, UDL have reviewed the majority of Transport for London's (TfL) funded public realm improvement schemes, the urban integration plans for most of the Elizabeth Line’s stations and have standing panels advising on the Silvertown Tunnel and TfL's funded Liveable Neighbourhood projects. We have also reviewed development projects for local authorities and developers.
For more information about our design review services please see our Guide to UDL’s Environmental Design Review Panel.
If you have a scheme for review, please get in touch with UDL’s Panel Manager, Paul Dodd. We can set up a panel with a programme of sessions to support your scheme as it develops.
Please note we are signatories of the Mayor’s London Quality Review Charter which sets standards for design review practices across the capital.
