Open - Borough-Wide Design Code consultation
The Great Yarmouth Borough-Wide Design Code Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) will add further guidance and detail in the application of existing design-based policies in the Council's adopted Local Plan. The SPD will set out clear principles and standards for how development should be designed in the borough, focusing on the priority aspects of design. As a code, it will also signpost users to other sources of regulation, guidance, assessment tools, and best practice.
Comments are being invited on the Borough-Wide Design Code Supplementary Planning Document, Habitat Regulations Assessment (HRA) screening report and Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) Screening Report and whether there is anything missing from the documents that you believe should be included. A summary of previous informal consultation under regulation 12 of the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) Regulations 2012 can be found within the .
The consultation opened at midnight on 21 July 2023 and will run until midnight on 13 October 2023. Comments received during the consultation period will help to form the final Borough-Wide Design Code SPD for adoption.
