Guildford Borough Council: Weyside Urban Village Community Design Code

This pilot case study sought to explore the process and outcomes of developing a community design code for phase 1 of Weyside Urban Village (WUV) - a large suburban development on brownfield land on the urban fringe of Guildford. The key themes included the role of engagement in building community capacity to enable effective participation in the design code process and in future consultation on the delivery of this major project; and the use of an invited Community Review Panel for the engagement, with representatives from the local residents and a range of local organisations.
