Skerningham Garden Village Design Code Draft SPD second consultation
A second round of public consultation on the draft Design Code for Skerningham Garden Village is now live.
After changes were made to the document as a result of the responses from the first consultation in autumn 2022, Cabinet agreed to hold a second consultation to make sure views of residents on the updated document are heard.
A design code sets out expectations about the look and feel of a development to make sure it reflects local character and the preferences of local residents.
Once formally agreed, the design code will be a material planning consideration in determining planning applications and will ensure that Skerningham Garden Village will be developed to a high-quality standard.
The changes made to the Design Code reflect many of the comments received during the first consultation including further detail on how the Code would be applied.
Where are the documents and how can I comment?
