In line with the recently revised National Planning Policy Framework, the Urban Design Team has been working on a series of quality audits and drafting some initial recommendations on design quality: the Design Quality Framework (DQF). This will become part of the Local Plan as a set of Supplementary Planning Documents. The starting themes covered by the framework are: New housing development, New residential streets and Shop fronts; other themes will follow in the future.
As these topics are of broad impact, we would like to hear as many views as possible. We are delighted that you are interested in participating in the consultation process.
