Greater Faverdale Burtree Garden Village Design Code SPD
Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) Consultation
The Greater Faverdale (Burtree Garden Village) Design Code Draft SPD [pdf document] sets out the strategic design requirements that need to be applied in developing a successful scheme for Greater Faverdale (Burtree Garden Village).
The design code is required as part of the recently adopted Darlington Local Plan 2016-2036 and reflects the requirements in government guidance.
It sets out a design process and design principles for developers to follow when preparing their plans for a new Garden Village.
The approach aims to create a distinctive, attractive and successful Garden Community in which to live and work, which is sustainable for the future.
Healthy Living is also an important thread in the statutory approvals process. Darlington was successful as being selected as being a Healthy New Towns pilot town.
This proposed Garden Village presents the first large scale opportunity to embed learning from the Healthy New Towns programme into delivering health care and a healthy built environment.
SPD’s add further details to the policies in the Local Plan.
They can be used to provide further guidance for development on specific sites, or on particular issues such as design.
They can be a material consideration in planning decisions.
The Draft Greater Faverdale (Burtree Garden Village) Design Code SPD, if adopted by the Council, will be a material planning consideration in determining planning applications.
The consultation on the Draft Design Code SPD for Greater Faverdale (Burtree Garden Village) will begin on Friday 8 April and will run for 4 weeks until 5pm on Friday 6 May 2022.
