New season - new look
You will by now have noticed our new look home page. It’s more dynamic, more interactive and gives us more space to keep you up to date.
A brand new NEWS FEED tells you what’s happening on the site and what’s going on in the industry.
There’s also a rolling feed of RECENT CHANGES that shows you new edits as they happen (you can see a complete list of changes since you last visited the site by clicking on the FEED link at the bottom of the page).
Finally, we’ve changed our strapline to encourage nervous would-be authors to take the plunge and write some articles.
We hope you like the new look, if you have any comments, use the FEEDBACK page to let us know.
We’re compiling a jargon-busting compendium of industry ACRONYMS – so far we have around 150.
Help make it really comprehensive by adding yours - just click on the 'acronyms' link above and then EDIT.
Take a look at our Permitted Developments article - they're not as 'permitted' as you might think.
If you’re not already, follow us on Twitter @DesigningB to be kept up to date with the latest additions to the site and to share your feedback with us.
Are you ready to write an article? Of course you are.
