1. Design Guide Draft Supplementary Planning Document (SPD)

The Local Plan 2013-2033 (Policy S2) promotes the key objectives of design which will support the creation of attractive, vibrant places.  

We have prepared a draft Design Guide that provides greater detail and clarifies the requirements of this policy. It will help guide development schemes that are submitted to us and decisions made on these.

The Design Guide will be adopted as a Supplementary Planning Document following consultation.

Consultation on the Draft Design Guide

Public consultation on the draft Design Guide will take place from Friday 26 January 2018 until Friday 9 March 2018. The documents below are available to comment on during this period. 

Please note, these documents are designed to be viewed in a 2 page view format.

Please give us your views on the draft Design Guide. We will not consider comments on any of the related local plan policies as these have already been determined through the examination and adoption of the Local Plan.

Comments can be made on our Live consultations page.
