Enjoyable, interesting, lots to think about, more than “what a building looks like”.

Lots of inspiration to create better places.

Very interesting. Flagged up a lot of issues that need thinking about when looking at schemes.

Really interesting and completely different angle on a planning application. Absolutely brilliant!

I thought it was excellent: well-presented and very engaging. It would be useful to know what this would look like as a design policy.

Interesting. Practical. Relevant.

Hugely informative and very applicable. Only wish we had longer to learn!

Very interesting!

Excellent course. Even as a planning enforcement officer I found the course and subject matter eye opening and very interesting. Thank you to both!

Great summary of design principles. Useful, practical exercises that are engaging. I felt like I learnt something new.

Really interesting. I liked the comparisons between what works and what doesn’t. Cheers!

Very interesting. I liked the emphasis on the fact that urban design is more than just detailed style of buildings, etc.
