Report of the Strategic Director of Place

Presented by the Planning and Infrastructure Portfolio Holder

Additional documents:


The Planning and Infrastructure Portfolio Holder presented the report to Members.


He advised that during Spring 2018 a number of people and organisations had been given the opportunity to respond to a consultation on the draft document, which had received general support. He advised that where comments had been made, the wording had been changed, where possible, and that more images had been used. He felt that the document was very easy to read and noted that it would replace a more formal document that had been in place since 2007. He stated that the document would support the design and building of future shops in the area to ensure that they fitted in to their surroundings.


Councillor R Blunt was pleased to have the document before Cabinet members , as it would make it easier to say no to applications that came forward should they not meet the design requirements.


Councillor R D Bayliss agreed that it was easy to read and a good document. He was pleased to see that Ashby was included.


It was moved by Councillor R Ashman, seconded by Councillor R Blunt  and




The revised SPD be adopted.


Reason for decision:- Adoption of the revised SPD would support the aims of the Council Delivery Plan relating to sustainable development and growth and people feeling proud of their homes and communities.
