National Design Guide

The Secretary of State for housing, communities and local government, has launched a new national design guide ‘with clout’ in a bid to wipe out ‘ugly’ developments and replace the system already in place. This new guide will “introduce a national standard for local authorities to adhere to, with the option of designing their own applicable guides reflecting local needs”. This infographic sums up the new guidance, that was unveiled at the Conservative Party Conference in Manchester.
