Other panel members include Biba Dow of Dow Jones, Philip Marsh of dRMM, Roger Hawkins of Hawkins Brown and Richard de Cani of Arup. Peter Bishop of Allies & Morrison has been appointed chair.

Each panel member aims to ensure that all new developments in London’s largest regeneration site meet the very highest design standards. The west London site has been identified as having potential for 25,000 new homes and will become a new interchange for Crossrail and High Speed 2, transforming the Old Oak Common from one of the most inaccessible parts of London into a well-connected, world-class transport hub handling 250,000 daily passengers.

The OPDC has also asked Frame Projects to recruit local people to join a new community review group that will sit alongside the place review group to provide comments on development plans in the area for consideration by the OPDC planning committee and OPDC board.

The Place Review Group will follow the 10 design review principles jointly agreed by the RIBA, Design Council CABE, the Landscape Institute and RIBA.
