Design input role sought

London's residents believe they have little say in the design of buildings and public spaces, according to an architecture and advocacy body.

Open-City's study found that 65.7 per cent believe that they do not have enough of a say in their local built environment. This is despite 98.5 per cent agreeing that it is important for their local area to be well designed.

"More innovative ways of public engagement are required in the planning process and dialogue has to be ongoing rather than a one-off consideration," said director Victoria Thornton.
