KEYWORDS & NOTES DETAILS
Notes:
1.    The new Design Guide should:
  • provide an effective tool that can be used to both design and assess development proposals;
  • set out clearly and briefly what the purpose of the guide is, how it is structured and how it should be used;
  • set out the design process that should be followed in order to achieve high quality design – this should include the need to consider future growth planned for the area and designing sites that deliver comprehensive development rather than single site solutions;
  • distinguish between best practice in rural and urban areas, where needed;
  • use visual aids to help educate the user and inform their understanding;
  • be easy to use and simple to navigate; and
  • clearly signpost where the user can access more detailed guidance and when this should be taken into account.
