The Good Design Guide Supplementary Planning Document 2020

About the supplementary planning document (SPD)


The Good Design Guide Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) aspires to substantially raise design quality in Hinckley and Bosworth borough whilst ensuring that the local identity and heritage of the borough 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 form a material consideration in the determination of planning applications. It should be read in conjunction with the adopted development plan to ensure adherence to borough-wide and location specific policy.
