As development pressures are now being felt by settlements large and small, urban and rural, do we really understand what makes these places special and distinctive?
Join Louise Thomas to explore:
Why local distinctiveness matters + How developers view local character + How to identify local distinctiveness (toolkits and guides) + How to embed recommendations and requirements into the planning system.
This seminar will be of interest to local authority officers and Councillors, civic societies, amenity and local community groups, and development planning and design consultants with an interest in urban design.
In line with the recently revised National Planning Policy Framework, the Urban Design Team in Nottingham City Council is working on a series of quality audits and drafting some initial recommendations on design quality for housing schemes. These will become part of the Local Plan as Supplementary Planning Documents. We would like to hear from you to know how this work could best support you during the design and planning process, and we would welcome your input.
