An urban designer needs to understand the planning system, the principles of urbanism, development economics, context appraisal, movement analysis, regeneration strategy, conservation, landscape design, site planning, masterplanning, public and stakeholder collaboration, implementation, project funding, project management, graphic communication, negotiation, and how to formulate design policy and write guidance. After all, how could a professional who does not meet that specification possibly get to grips with the full complexities of the urban design and development process?
Specifically, though, the following are tasks that are carried out by urban designers (who may or may not use that term to describe themselves). Some urban designers have the necessary skills and experience to carry out all of them. Others have more limited capabilities. Prospective employers will need to decide what tasks they need to be performed, and to ensure that the person appointed matches that requirement.
An urban designers job will be to write policies, provide studies and appraisals, give design advice, guidance and statements, site and area design, manage the process, provide design awareness and promotion.
