Cutswatch #111: Commission on Architecture and the Built Environment

05 Jul 2010, by in Cuts Watch

Design Reviews – the mechanism by which design standards are enforced in new property developments – could be the main victim of cuts in funding for the Commission on Architecture and the Built Environment.CABE (which took over from the Royal Fine Art Commission in 1999) is the government’s advisor on architecture and the urban environment, and they have to be consulted over significant planning applications. CABE gives advice on applications through a process known as design review, but this may no longer be possible, given the Coalition’s plans for decentralisation of responsibility for quality of design and the cuts in funding for CABE.
