Value of Design

Almost every current political priority depends on improving standards in the urban environment. UDAL is committed to spreading that message and ensuring that a broad range of professionals are focused on delivering improvements to the quality of urban life.
Professionals need to learn new skills and new ways of working. They also depend on having a better framework of regulations and laws. The case still needs to be made - particularly to local politicians and to developers - that good design pays.
