A Design Guidelines and Codes report has been prepared by AECOM for the Chartham Parish Neighbourhood Plan. Neighbourhood planning groups can play an important role in identifying the special qualities of each area and explaining how this should be reflected in development, both through their own plans and by engaging in the production of design policy, guidance and codes by local planning authorities and developers.

Existing general design guidance and codes are intended to inform the design of homes which come forward on these sites as well as through any speculative proposals. This Design Guidelines and Codes report will provide an additional and more detailed framework to make sure any design proposal contributes to a distinctive place with a consistent and high quality standard of design. This report will become an integral part of the Chartham Neighbourhood Plan and be given weight in the planning process.
