WM design charter aims for quality transport infrastructure

07 February 2020

An initiative to promote, inspire and encourage good design has been launched across the West Midlands. The West Midlands Design Charter, developed by the West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA) in partnership with the region’s local councils, aims to secure high-quality design in transport infrastructure, housing, civic architecture, urban spaces and parks.

In supporting the region’s wider design sector, it is also intended to drive investment and inclusive economic growth while combating global warming by promoting low carbon, energy efficient and climate resilient design.

Launching the Charter, Mayor of the West Midlands Andy Street, said: ‘Great design and creativity can have a huge and positive impact on the quality of life and wellbeing of our communities.

‘But this Charter is not just about raising the quality of the homes, places, buildings and natural environment around us. It’s also about championing and promoting our design sector, helping to drive our regional economy and new jobs.

‘This Charter will build on that existing talent and seek to take it to the next level, helping to establish the West Midlands as the UK design capital.’
