As well as representing Tibbalds, Hilary is one of 50 Design Advocates appointed by Mayor of London Sqdiq Khan, appointed to work on the Good Growth by Design programme, they support Good Growth across London and address the challenges facing’s our built environment.

Good Growth by Design sets out a united programme of work to enhance the design of buildings and neighbourhoods for all Londoners.

Hilary is presenting the research into Social Infrastructure that the GLA have been carrying out with Social Life and Hawkins Brown.

As part of the Mayor of London’s Good Growth by Design (GGbD) programme, Designing a City for All Londoners is an event to celebrate the programme and its first term of activities. It will also be an opportunity to show the work to date on draft guidance for two important policies – ‘Good Quality Housing for all Londoners’ – new housing design guidance, which embeds quality at the centre of housing delivery, and the Public London Charter, which sets out new principles for the rights and responsibilities of the owners, managers and users of public spaces.

Compered by Sadie Morgan OBE, a Mayor’s Design Advocate (MDA), the event will celebrate the Good Growth by Design programme and progress made across a range of priority areas like circular economy, child-friendly cities and high streets. This work has all been summarised in a new compendium, edited by MDA Rory Hyde and launched, and available on the day.

The event will bring together local authorities, built environment experts, the planning sector and a public and civil society audience to showcase and recognise the role of design in improving development and delivering quality of life in a growing city.
