Supplementary planning documents (SPDs)

Residential Design Standards SPD

The Residential Design Standards SPD (PDF, 824kb) was adopted in 2011 and was subject to a technical update in March 2015, in response to changes to the government’s housing standards review. An interim guidance note (PDF, 208kb) has also been published by the council which supplements these changes.

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

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