Supplementary planning documents (SPDs)

Residential Design Standards SPD

Our Residential Design Standards SPD (PDF, 824kb) was adopted in 2011. We did a technical update to the SPD in March 2015, in response to changes to the government’s housing standards review. We also made an interim guidance note (PDF, 208kb) to support these changes.

The SPD contains further detailed guidance on our residential design policies for:

  • new-build homes
  • conversions
  • affordable homes
  • extensions and more
