Part of the TCPA New Communities Group programme, this webinar will discuss the National Design Guide and the government’s new national model design code for councils in the context of planning new large-scale places.

As proposed in the Planning White Paper, the design codes will be integrated into local plans and used as part of the expanded system of permission in principle for areas deemed suitable for development. It is anticipated that projects in areas zoned for growth will be exempt from planning if they comply with the local design code.

The webinar will discuss design quality, standards for new large-scale communities and adapting design codes to reflect the history and fabric of local contexts, as well as retrofitting design features.
