The District Design Guide

In September 2000 the District Council adopted, as supplementary planning guidance (SPG), comprehensive design guidance for developers. Its central focus is maintaining the distinctive, local qualities of the District.

Stratford-on-Avon District Council expects all proposals for new works to be of high quality. Designers and applicants are strongly advised to consult the Stratford District Design Guide at the earliest opportunity, as they will be expected to justify their design proposals.

  • The Stratford-on-Avon District Design Guide (includes the Countryside Design Summary). Design guidance for all those in the planning process. (Only available to download.)
  • The Countryside Design Summary - summary of the character of Stratford-on-Avon District with general design principles an A1 poster format.
  • The Stratford-on-Avon Character Map - in conjunction with the above summary.

For further information on local character and design guidance please contact 01789 260304 or email planning.applications@stratford-dc.gov.uk.
