Wokingham Borough Council Seeks Views on Design Guide Supplementary Planning Document


Wokingham Borough Council will be seeking views on a new Borough Design Guide Supplementary Planning Document from Wednesday December 21. The guide will provide developers and applicants with advice and guidance on the design process the council expects when preparing schemes for all scales of development.

The document will bring the borough’s design guidance right up to date. It will replace a range of older documents, including those which relate to new residential development, house extensions and countryside dwellings, and has a wider scope, encompassing guidance for all types of development.

In the design guide, the council expects developers of any type or scale of building to achieve a high quality design and to fully justify their approach when requesting planning permission. All schemes will be judged against the Design Guide when the council makes planning decisions.

The consultation will run until February 15, 2012 with all the details online at www.wokingham.gov.uk

Comments about the guide can be made via email to: [email protected] or in writing to Clare Lawrence at PO Box 157 Shute End Wokingham Berkshire RG40 1WR.
