Design and access statements
Design and Access Statements ensure that new developments meet local criteria in respect of land use, practicality and environmental considerations.
All Householder planning applications in Conservation Areas, most non-householder applications seeking Outline or Full Planning Consent and all applications for Listed Building Consent (including Householder planning applications which also need Listed Building Consent) will require Design and Access Statements.
If a Design and Access Statement is required and not submitted we will be unable to accept your application.
Please see the below documents for full guidance on Design and Access Statements.
Further guidance on Design and Access Statements from CABE is available here.
