Design Working Group

The Design Working Group has been up and running since the beginning of the year. They’re a group of residents on Wornington Green and Portobello Square, who have signed up to be involved in influencing the detailed design of Phase 3.

We advertised for Design Working Group members in autumn last year, through flyers to all households and at Portobello’s
Park Party. The group includes residents from the old and new buildings, and private owners as well as tenants.

The group have agreed their terms of reference and the programme of workshops, and held the first two detailed design sessions.

If you’re interested in joining the Design Working Group, please contact NewmanFrancis, your Independent Tenants’ Advisors, on 0800 644 6040 or
