Pact outlined for gateway

Public sector landowners in the Thames Gateway must not sell land without a binding masterplan, the government's design watchdog warned this week.

The Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment (CABE) wants publicly owned sites to be exemplar developments. Launching its draft design pact at the gateway forum, it called for a step-change in quality.

CABE urged the DCLG, delivery agencies, councils and developers to sign up to the pact, which outlines six principles on areas such as leadership and climate change. A final draft is due next spring.
