Places Matter is an independent organisation, hosted by RIBA, which is devoted to generating a strong sense of place in living, working and leisure environments throughout north west England.
We work across the public, private and third sectors to drive up the skills and knowledge of all those involved in new development, promoting good design and encouraging strong client leadership.
We are based at RIBA North in Liverpool. Our expert design review panel provides timely and impartial advice that can add value to the development process, operating under the widely recognised Ten Principles of Good Design.
We hold set monthly design review panel meetings, but will arrange additional sessions to meet your client’s needs and development timetable.
