Design Yorkshire is the new name for the Yorkshire and Humber Design Review Panel, managed by Integreat Plus, a not-for-profit social enterprise. Design Yorkshire is an independent and impartial peer review system that has worked across Yorkshire and the Humber for over 10 years, reviewing hundreds of schemes. As a founding members of the national Design Network we support local authorities, design teams and communities to raise the standard of design and placemaking throughout the region.
Utilising a multi-disciplinary panel of experts, Design Yorkshire positively assists design teams in achieving high quality outcomes and supports Local Planning Authorities in determining the design quality of proposals.

Design Review is recognised in the NPPF as way to constructively assess the design quality of projects.
