Further planning guidance

  1. Further planning guidance (You are here)
  2. Guidance for housing developers

Many planning applications must now include design and access statements. The only exceptions are:

  • A change in the use of land or buildings (unless it also involves changes to the land or buildings)
  • Engineering or mining operations
  • Development of an existing house, or development within the grounds of a house for any purpose linked to the enjoyment of the house, where no part of the house or its grounds is within a conservation area

Further information is available from the Design Council.
