Christopher Lee has been appointed by the London Mayor Sadiq Khan, as the Mayor’s Design Advocate. He will be providing expertise and guidance on the Mayor’s Good Growth Programme, with the focus on the creation of socially and economically inclusive, and environmentally sustainable city through its buildings and infrastructure. Part of the plan calls for the re-balancing of development in London away from the high-price homes in central London towards more genuinely affordable homes for all Londoners. He, alongside 50 other Mayor’s Design Advocates, will be responsible for setting and implementing ambitious design standards for the city’s development, and will help the Greater London Authority champion best practices for procurement processes including design competitions.
