National Design Guide

The National Design Guide was published today by the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government. It illustrates how well-designed places that are beautiful, enduring and successful can be achieved in practice. So naturally Alnwick is featured.

See page 20: Pottergate: “Flats are used to turn the corner of this urban block. Stepped bay windows and a large chimney stack to create a positive and interesting facade treatment on a prominent corner“.

The design guide is for:

  • local authority planning officers, who prepare local planning policy and guidance and assess the quality of planning applications;
  • councillors, who make planning decisions;
  • applicants and their design teams, who prepare applications for planning permission;
  • people in local communities and their representatives.
