The Good Design Guide Supplementary Planning Document 2019

The Good Design Guide Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) 2019

What's it all about?

Developments that are well planned make a positive contribution to the built environment. The Good Design Guide Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) aspires to substantially raise design quality in the borough of Hinckley and Bosworth whilst ensuring that the local identity and heritage of the borough is enhanced by providing a guide for all those involved in the planning process.

The Good Design Guide is set out in sections and outlines the council’s design principles in order to provide clarity to those who wish to carry out development, whether it is an extension to an existing house, a new development, a barn conversion or even a new sign for a shopfront.
