Planning Advice Note 68: Design Statements

Conclusion

All applicants, including developers, architects, designers and agents, should consider design
as an integral part of the development process. This advice aims to encourage more attention
to be given to the design of developments.

Although it will involve some additional work to present ideas and thinking, in many cases it can
be achieved simply. It should not be an onerous task. By providing additional information, which explains and illustrates the design principles and design concept, applicants are likely to benefit from a greater degree of certainty in the planning process, and quicker decision making. The result should be improved quality of new development, lasting improvements to the built environment and successful places.
