Design principles for the new development

The council is committed to providing high quality, well designed homes and surroundings to create healthy and sustainable environments where people want to live. We will deliver a mix of home sizes to meet the local housing need, with a combination of flats and duplexes and a mix of tenures for families with children and for small and single person households.

Landscaped spaces will include trees, planting, grassed areas and children’s play areas. Biodiversity will be key in planning planting, buildings will be laid out to maximise daylight and sunlight, while homes will be energy efficient. Developments will be well connected, with safe and active streets designed to reduce antisocial behaviour. We will enhance and continue to build a strong sense of community and belonging in any development.
