This report summarises the content, scope and purpose of the draft Welborne Design Guidance Supplementary Planning Document, with a view to thereafter commencing a public consultation exercise.
The Local Plan Part 3: The Welborne Publication Draft Plan introduced the Council’s intention to produce Supplementary Design Guidance to provide more detailed guidance for policies within the Welborne Plan. The Design Guidance sets out the Council’s expectations for the design of developments at Welborne and will provide a useful Development Management tool against which planning applications can be assessed.
The Guidance will provide useful clarification of the Council’s design requirements and thereby assist with the preparation and assessment of planning applications. The Guidance will also provide more certainty for the Council and the local community as to the design quality of Welborne as well as providing more certainty for Site Promoters in achieving a successful planning application.
RESOLVED that the Executive approves that:
(a) the Draft Welborne Design Guidance Supplementary Planning Document, as set out in Appendix A, be published for a six-week public consultation;
(b) the Director of Planning and Development, in consultation with the Executive Member for Planning and Development, be authorised to make any necessary minor changes to the Design Guidance, prior to publication, providing that these do not change the overall direction, shape or emphasis of the document, and do not raise any significant new issues; and
(c) the Draft Welborne Design Guidance Supplementary Planning Document be endorsed as interim guidance to be afforded due weight in the determination of planning applications at the Welborne site.
