Next steps

Following consultation, the Urban Living SPD will be updated. It is anticipated that the SPD will then be adopted by Cabinet in September 2018.

Why We Are Consulting

Consistent with the council’s Statement of Community Involvement (SCI), we are seeking feedback from the local community and key stakeholders on:

  • generic design guidance for higher density developments (including tall buildings);
  • the location of a number of ‘Urban Living’ focal areas ;
  • a set of new residential quality standards; and
  • assessment guidance for applicants

We will publish a consultation statement setting out who was consulted, the main issues raised and how they have been addressed in the draft document.
