The Good Design Guide Supplementary Planning Document 2020

About the supplementary planning document (SPD)


The Good Design Guide Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) aims to raise design quality in Hinckley and Bosworth borough, all while ensuring that the local identity and heritage of the area is  preserved and enhanced.

Through providing accessible, clear guidance, this document will encourage high quality design and ensure that consistent rules are applied to the assessment of design by Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council. In doing so, this will simplify the application process for both applicants and for us, as the local authority.

This supplementary planning document will play a role in the determination of planning applications. It should be read together with the adopted development plan, to ensure borough-wide and location-specific policy is applied.
