Christchurch Urban Design Panel Refresh

In October of this year, the Christchurch City Council sought Expressions of Interest (EOI) from leading built-environment professionals as part of a refresh of the Christchurch Urban Design Panel which has been operating since 2008. 

The EOI was an open call and received almost 60 expressions of interest, supported by nominations from fellow professionals. A total of 20 panellists have been appointed for a two year term of service, with 18 from within Christchurch/Canterbury area. 

Representation from the property development sector has increased, in line with a recommendation of the independent review of the Panel in 2015. The refreshed Panel benefits from the skills and experience of both existing and new Panellists. 

The support of the Urban Design Forum alongside other professional institutes and organisations has been recognised. UDF looks forward to seeing the Panel continuing to provide advice that adds value to urban development in Christchurch and raises the profile of urban design. 

The updated Christchurch Urban Design Panel membership is now live on Council’s website:

Urban Design Forum members appointed to the Panel are:

Tim Church
Janet Reeves
Robin Simpson
