Georgina Bignold appointed to Greater Cambridge Design Review Panel

Director Georgina Bignold has been selected as one of 40 nationally respected built environment professionals to join the Greater Cambridge Design Review Panel. The panel provides advice for developers, planning officers, parish councils and members of the public to support innovative, high quality design.  

Georgina has played a key role on the award winning projects in the Greater Cambridge area including Abode at Great Kneighton, a major new housing and mixed use community and Inholm, a sustainable urban neighbourhood of 400 homes, part of the wider new town of Northstowe. Initiated by Homes England, Northstowe is England’s most ambitious new town project since Milton Keynes and will eventually grow to a community of 10,000 homes.  

Georgina is currently leading a collaborative project with O'Donnell + Tuomey to provide new housing for Dublin City Council. Past work includes applying her experience to undertake design guidance that aspires to deliver character and quality across large sites. The Design for Ebbsfleet Study, commissioned by the Ebbsfleet Development Corporation, develops a series of design narratives and strategies building on the study of context to create a distinctive character Ebbsfleet Garden City. She also led the Hertfordshire Strategic Sites Design Guidance - the study provides a set of guiding principles for large urban extensions and new settlements across the county - ensuring new homes and jobs are delivered in a socially, economic and environmentally sustainable way. 

Georgina is also a member of the Ebbsfleet Garden City Design Forum and Design South East's Canterbury Design Review Panel.
