Who we are and what we do:
We are a not-for-profit organisation, founded in 2002 to support London’s built environment professionals create and maintain well-designed, good quality places. Our yearly subscription programmes give people from member organisations (employees or councillors) access to our training events, design review services and other resources such as course materials and guidance documents. We will provide information about upcoming events and available resources to people from member organisations so they can make best use of their subscription.
We comply with all applicable UK and EU data protection legislation in force in respect of any personal information you submit to us.

You can contact us to amend or remove any information you submit to us, or ask us to remove all of your personal information.
We will send people who have either
participated at an Urban Design London event and/or is a subscribing member organisation information about upcoming events and resources related to our events by email. We will ask people who attend our events but are not connected to a member organisation to sign up to our newsletter to receive such messages.
