City Design – The New Agenda

City Design, Newcastle City Council’s architectural department, was facing decline and possible closure in 2003/04. This report, commissioned by Newcastle City UNISON from the Centre for Public Services, examines the future demands for high quality design of public buildings, public spaces and the public realm. It examines the options for the service and includes a risk matrix of the options. The service was retained in-house. Includes an appendix on Key Principles for City Design.
