Arun District Council will be consulting on the Arun District Design Guide Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) from 9 January 2020 until 5pm on 21 February 2020.
The Arun District Design Guide sets out the Council’s expectations for the design quality of new development, the preservation, conservation and enhancement of the built and natural environment with its distinctive character and qualities that can be found within the District. The Arun District Design Guide SPD is intended to provide further detail to the Design policies of the Arun Local Plan (chapter 13) and to raise the standard of design across the District.
Following the consultation, and subject to any changes necessary to address any representations made, the guide will go to Full Council in Spring 2020 with the recommendation that it be adopted as a Supplementary Planning Document to be used by Arun District Council when determining planning applications.
The document can be viewed throughout the consultation period at Arun Civic Centre and Bognor Regis Town Hall and is also available at the libraries within Arun District and on the Council’s website https://www.arun.gov.uk/supplementary-planning-documents-spds .
Please respond using the Council’s consultation portal as this is the most efficient and accurate way to capture your representation http://arun.objective.co.uk/portal . We also accept emails sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or written responses (using the consultation response form) by post to Planning Policy and Conservation, Arun District Council, Maltravers Road, Littlehampton, BN17 5LF.
